I like them for high stick nymphing, They load easier and are therefore easier to cast and mend line for good long drifts, casts farther when you need to, and as long as there are no obstructions allow you be further away from the water when fishing for very spooky fish in gin clear water where they see you just as easily as you see them.

There have been only a few situations at least where I fish here in California where a shorter rod due to tight quarters would have been advantageous. If I cannot find a 9' I'll settle for a 8' or 8'6."

The main reason I'm interested in a 3wt is recently my Guide on the Upper Sacramento River brought one out and it was a very "fishy" rod.

Well!!!! That explains it all!!

Wish you were closer ... I'd have you try out my 7'3# Lamiglass!! That puppy'll cast!! Plus, it's short enough to be useful in tighter situations.

Is this a stupid question, does the Batson Rainshadow compare to the Pac Bay Rainforest or is the rainforest so much bettter that there just is no comparison.
