Have had one for many years.

A Zebco lightweight rod, which came with it's own reel and hard case. Actually a pretty good rod and reel, in it's day. I don't use it much these days because my newer ultra-light spinning combo is a finer setup, but I would still not feel slighted if I had to use it. I sure as heck ain't getting rid of it.
Pros - Easy storage and portability, especially in a cased package like mine. It could be that rod you always have with you (as it was for me for quite some time).
Cons - I'm under the impression that it will cost more to get the same lively feel, compared to a one-piece or a take-apart rod. Repair-ability may be an issue.
