Re: Feedback: T&T Vector
I have no experience with Vector but T&T builds fine rods, if the action suits you, with the best finish work in the industry. The reason 8-weights and up have gotten stiffer in the tip over time is a function of how they are used. With he exception of steelhead and large mouth bass fishing, most #8's see time in the salt where a fast recovering tip and substantial low end grunt facilitate accurate long distance fly presentations. Quicker recovering tips generate higher line speed and smoother, tighter loops which not only aid distance but dealing with wind as well. Still, a little feeling in the tip never hurt anyone as long as tracking and recovery rate are not impacted.
