Re: Trade my St. Croix Legend Ultra for a Legend Elite???
The Elite is an Ultra Fast rod... I assume if you are fishing a 3 wt you are fishing mostly small streams with tiny flies. So long distance casting probably would not be an issue. Also I would be concerned that such a fast rod would snap tiny flies off the tippet. I have the Ultra and while it is listed as Fast action, it, to me, is a tad slower than other "Fast" action rods I use. I love it, but if I am small stream fishing I usually go with my St Croix AVID or one of my Boos.
