Default Re: What I learned about a 3WT

Keep in mind that all three weights are not created equal and that's really true when talking length. A nine or ten ft three weight has a foot or more of beefy butt at times giving you a stronger rod to fall back on once that tip flex is taken out during a fight. A 7 ft 9 three weight has little of that stronger butt. As for double hauling, both my 7'9" three weights and the 9 ft three weight does great but you do have to adjust your haul to three weight strength versus what you might do with a nine.
