It's a ligthweigh rod with fast recovery (in comparison with Anglers Roost 11" #2/3 which is my second rod). The Kingfisher 11" #3/4 is more a fast rod and for czech isn't as sweet as i like. And the last and most fast of the blanks is Angler's Roost 10" #3/4 i didn't like it, it's a stick, fast and hard, for big fish.
Sorry for my english!!! Ask if i haven't explained good enought.
Fredy you have mail!!
Guli,
Never got you mail?
