Re: 3WT Rods need help!
I had two 3wt rods - an Albright A5 and an Orvis Superfine Trout Bum. I liked them both, but I preferred the Albright; so I sold the Orvis when I was cash strapped. The Albright is 7'6" as was the Orvis. A 10' three weight seems a little too specialized to me, but I got the 3wt for dries on little creeks with tight conditions. Allen offers 3wt rods at 7'6" and 8' as well.
Give the Albright consideration - it is $40 less than the Allen (I have an Allen 6w and love it!)
