I have a couple Lamiglas Kokanee rods, they are the same model. The rods are two piece. How important is it to keep the same halves together? I have used colored tape on the rods to make sure the rods do not get mixed up. I was just wondering what others have done and to see how important it is.

If you want to keep tops matched with bottoms, the fine point metallic sharpies work well and are less obtrusive than tape

Really depends on what you're matching up. If you start with a heavy blank and down to a much lower power it will affect your casting, especially with a baitcaster. Your line test should be matched up to a rod with the proper power so it needs to be consistent throughout.

It really depends on the quality of the rod. If they are the over seas blanks then it probably doesn't matter but if they are upper end models and hand wrapped then you want to try to keep them together. In reality though, like others have said it may not make any difference at all. Personally, I'd keep them together because it would drive me nuts if I didn't.

I do this with my rod/reel sets just so I can figure what mainline I use along with the leader too. My memory is not all that good....Jetspray

Only one point on that for me would be eyesight. I prefer the P-touch because you can make the lettering/numbers larger and wrap scotch tape around the P-touch tape to keep it on the butt of the rod or tail end. Easy to read and it stays when wet......Jetspray
