I have a 7'6" 2 piece saltstriker inshore rod that seems fairly strong, but ive never caught anything huge on it except for a big cat at sutherland that put a hurting on it. It was only around 12lbs
They could build a 5 piece rod, and as long as it's from a reputable rod manufacture, I'd trust it all the way to it's rating. Look at all the big 4 piece 10 wt fly rods.
