Default Santiam 3 Piece Spinning Rod

Anyone have experience or heard about experience with a Santiam 3 piece spinning rod? I want an eight foot rod but would like it to fit in the back of my trunk.

I have a Shimano 3 piece rod that fits in a little plastic briefcase... It's only 6 1/2 foot... Very dodgy action-wise... Stiff for how thin it is... I carry it in the saddle bag of my Harley when I go day tripping in case I hit something that looks promising... Overall, I wouldn't use it for any other reason...

Checked the Santiam web site. Per the picture each piece is equal length, so each would be 32" for an 8' rod.

I completely forgot I posted in here. Thanks for your input ja-knee-sea. nlbob: I did see the pictures and the specs, I guess I should've worded what I wanted to find out better. I was just looking to see if anyone has had any experience with this brand of fishing rod. Sorry about that!
