This is as good as it gets
I'm one of those barneys that goes and casts and tries to fish with every rod I can get my hands on. I'm going to try and make this short. This is the best euro rod out there. Some rods are good, some ok, some great and then there's that category of magic rod. If we are lucky somebody will tell us. The 3wt 10'8" is a magic rod. It is a light and has fast tip recovery, allowing one to immediately setup the drift. Because it is light and long it's easier to keep more line off the water through the drift while fishing either nymphs or dries. I have yet to still unwrap it's capabilities, but what keeps me interested in the game is the rod simply "feels" great. It loads easily and stays precise trough the cast. That's not easy to do casting thin diameter monofilament and tungsten. A rod that feels good is a rod I will keep for a very long time.
