Spinning Rods

What is your opinion on this type of spinning rod?

One that has the rod blank at the end. I normally dont buy rods from walmart but I was looking at them and they had some pretty good one's there. Not lil cheepies either trust me they cost as much as a St. Croix Primer. But they have the rod blank at the handle and I dont really like the look of that. I like the all cork handle. What is your opinion on it? Pros and Cons? This is the style of handle I am talking about

Dan and GMB you both gave me a good answer! It does seem like it would be easier to break when fishing

Ohhhh, okay... you're talking about split-grip handles. Yeah, I don't like the way they look or feel. Some "pros" and rod manufacturers claim that the split-grip handles make the rod lighter and more sensitive, I think that's just marketing bullshit. I don't care if it's a high-end Gary Loomis NRX with a split-grip or a St. Croix Legend Extreme with a split-grip, the split-grips are to cut production costs. It's cheaper to build a rod with a split-grip than it is a full-cork handle.

I personally prefer full-length cork handles over split-grips.
