So true. I paired my 8'6" superfine touch to a lamson litespeed (1 or 1.5) and the tip feels heavy now. Same reel balances perfectly with my 7' 4wt helios tho. Oh well...gonna have to get a new 3wt reel.

Yes indeed. I'm taking a newbie out tomorrow and bringing along a superfine full flex 3wt for him to try out with some poppers. A) he'll be able to feel the rod load B) with tiny poppers the blue gill will be eager and top water will help him see and set the hook... C) the lightweight rod bend from a small fish.

I use the same rod/reel pairing for summer days on a spring creek. Adding that 3wt has been a big plus all the way around.
