Default Re: Got a new rig today

I definitely can't comment on the balance of the rod & reel as I've never even heard of 3Forks never mind casting it. But I will add, if the rod isn't loading that would be caused by the line. If it's a combo you bought and the line came with, it's probably a generic low end line or it could even be the wrong line weight or both. I'm a firm believer that a high quality fly line should be your #1 priority as you can pretty much take any average rod, add a great line to it and it'll cast well. Remember, a $100 graphite rod today, was a top of the line graphite rod rod 15 yrs ago.

Cheers,
Doc
