These days virtually all top end fly rods are 4 piece - it doesn't affect the action like older spigoted rods. Absolute delight for travelling. A couple of years ago I had a blast fishing for barramundi and giant snakehead, in Thailand, with a 4 piece fly rod. The rod easily fits in a suitcase - no more extra checked in rod cases. I just wish they were allowed in carry on luggage (Not in the UK/Europe, same with reels and line Angry).

That is why I like telescopic rods with wrapped guides. The reason is that the wrapping and the guide take the section out of round and prevent full lockup.This was true when I repaired my short bolognese rod which had 2 segments stuck and I got them unstuck very easy after removing the wrapping and guide.

I have just waxed joints on my rods. At the exit point, and then spin them back and forward all around.
