Re: Cabela's 3 Forks 3wt/Prestige Plus Combo
Nice review-- and a fair approach to it. I bought the 3 forks combo (with the 3 forks reel), in the same weight, a few years ago. I've since replaced the reel with an old pflueger medalist. Not that (for what I need) the 3 forks reel was terrible, I just had an extra medalist laying around...
I agree with everything your review states-- fit and finish is as good as needed, the cast is nice, and it has a decent amount of 'umph' to pull in fish that are bigger than what you might be targeting with a 3 wt.
I fish mainly warmwaters and the 3 wt three forks is a fantastic sunnie and smaller sized largemouth rod.
One word of caution-- the rod feels a little soft to be overlining it at 50 foot distances. Just my humble opinion. Try it and it might really wake the little rod up, but I suspect you might be going back to the 3 wt. line.
