Kramer recommended the Diamondback - and it’s a sweet stick. I picked it up to primarily fish local small water and having a blast. Much better than a 3wt name brand rod I was on. Have fished the Yakima river here in Washington, but I love this rod on our tributaries. The tip recovery is fantastic, accurate casts, and great “feel.” No gripes to note - the dual lock on the reel seat was a little tricky at first, but it was user error. Just tighten them separately and it will hold all day. I wish I had found this sooner.
