David Norwich used to do a range of rods called the "Stowaway" they were the first 4 piece rods I ever cast and they were just as good as 2 piece rods ,I also loved the 4 piece portability - Before this I always bought 2 piece rods.

If 2 piece rods are your preference then go right ahead as their is little or no difference on action ( IMHO)

I'm all for it. Everybody wants 4 piece these days which means two piece are hard to sell and consequently cheap. I've bought a few quality two piece for little money over the last year and will continue to do so

'Cos most of the rods we bought up to 2009 were two or three piece. They had to stimulate the market somehow; so now 4 piece are the way to go. Once sales of 4 piece start to slow.....just watch. Back to two piece or interchangeable butt sections and different actioned tips

You are kidding I hope!
some of the best, most revered, 4 and 5 piece or more! trout rods were built late nineties early 2000's Salmon rods have always been 3 piece upwards!
I own quite a few of the trout rods from that era, and too many of the salmon ones!

Nothing to do with fashion just a better way of transporting rods , Makes great sense having multi piece fly rods
