Default Re: 3 wt Rod Recommendation (BVK maybe)?

When I add the extension it does a bit better with a Wf-4 line, but then when I use the extension, I am usually nymphing, and delicacy is not that much of an issue.
Thanks for the input!

Most of the BVKs I've heard about have a line like the Rio Grande or a full line size up. How does the 8 foot version fish with a regular 3 wt line? Have you tried it with a 4 wt line? Difference between the two?

What's the action like on the (CT) Tempt?
