Re: Odd or even number rods?
If we have learned anything reading all these threads about rod capabilities and manufacturer marketing, it is that a stated rod weight may have little to do with how a rod fishes. I have (too many) 4 very different 5wts. Two are Sages and fish like 6 wts. 1 is a Redington CT and fishes like a 4. I also have a couple of 3wts, 1 of which fishes like a 4.
I guess my point is that a guy should acquire rods that fit the water, fish and style that makes sense for him....not worrying so much about odd or even numbers and more about how each rod fits a need...
2 more cents, I guess...but I think it's counter productive to search for guidelines that don't fit with reality. -Mike
