Jason Mitchell Meatstick from Clam comes in a 48" 2-piece.  It's my favorite perch rod.

Easier to get a bigger case and then not be limited on options?

Thought about that too but I only run a single man hut and am limited on space those 42 inch rod cases are super bulky in my opinion normally only use 28in rods so donít wanna get a bigger case just for one rod to fit in. Iíve done a lot of google seacrching for 2 piece rods doesnít seem like there are really any options for what Iím looking for besides the northland one I said in beginning of post and they are discontinued

I use the JM Dead Meat rod for walleye's on LOTW and its got enough backbone to set the hook, so you don't have to worry about that.  I like the fast tip on it to keep the fish hooked while they shake their heads.  Mine is the 36".  If you are wanting to hole hop, this may the shortest you want to go.  I know it doesn't fit your case.  Still looking for a 2 piece option for you.

This might be an option when the tips are removed from the butt and there is others on Amazon when searching just "ice rod". It's 32in but only goes down to medium not medium light in the 32in option.

You may have already done this, but did you try and send an email to their customer support and ask if they have any ideas on who made these for them, or if they have any laying around?  Maybe they can point you to a company that they would know who still has something like this.  If you are set on that style and length, you may have to go the custom route.

Anyone know of any good rod builders that would do this

I have a few of those fire-tip rods laying around somewhere. Let me see what I have and I might be able to help you out.

Eyeconic just came out with a telescoping rod, might work?

edit: maybe not, I see it only collapses down to 35" and is only available in UL

I bought one of these rods from Runnings in Monticello, MN I think last spring, and I believe I saw them in stock at the new St. Cloud Runnings as well. I don't see any listed on the website, but if you have one close by, maybe call and see if they have any?

I might have one of each if I'm not mistaken. I think I might have a light, med-light, med., and med-heavy. I just have to dig them out and see what I have. But when I do I'll messege you.
