Default Re: ?Anyone know about March Brown Ltd. Fly Rod?

I have a 9' 8 wt 6 piece March Brown Legacy rod that is really too heavy and stiff for an 8 but is much better as a 9. Don't know about the Diplomat series compared to the Legacy, or how the lighter line sizes feel, but I imagine all the extra ferrules in any multi-piece rod will at least add some weight. I have a 6 piece 6 weight TFO and a 7 piece 5 weight Orvis, and both of those are a bit unbalanced because of the extra weight in the ferrules. That's not necessarily a disastrous thing, but it is a disadvantage that you have to compare with the advantage of the extra compactness and portability.
