This is without a doubt the finest 3 weight rod in the 7 1/2ft. length that I have every used. I was curious as to how it would handle short casts so I started with 8 feet of fly line with a 9ft 5X leader. The delicacy and accuracy I achieved was outstanding. As I lengthened the line at 5 ft. intervals I was impressed with the tight loop, accuracy, the length of line I could cast and the fast recovery of the rod. Scott has done it again, this is a winner!
