Re: fast action vs. mod. fast?
I'm skeptical of all of the sub-categories (med-fast, slow-med, etc.)rather than slow, medium and fast. But I guess I do prefer the faster med rather than a 'true' medium. I guess I have a bad casting stroke, but I just like the forgiveness of a slightly slower rod. And I don't have a problem getting to the 60' mark with a bigger fly with the med- med/fast rods....
So; Make mine a medium (with a little extra) ,please.
I do see tailing loops with a 'true' fast rod- until I adjust- As Wabi said: it's not hard to adjust-- just takes me a little 'respect' for the rod and it works just fine.
