That blank is what Ron at H & H suggested to me for the action I like. I could also substitute the blank for a Xi 7'9" 3wt. However I would really prefer a 8'6"-9'. Since I fish mostly good size trout Rivers like the Upper Sacramento, Truckee, etc. doing a lot of high sticking and need the reach. I'd really like to do a 3wt since I don't currently have one. Then again since my Sage LL is a 2 piece it is difficult to pack. I could delegate the LL to even more occasional use this rod if I end up liking it better than the TFO Finesse 8'9" the TFO could end up being my main squeeze and the TFO my backup.:confused::confused:
What you all think? I mean other than that I'm nuts! lol
Re: How Would This Be For a First Build
While I have not built up that blank ... yet ... I would certainly take what Ron has told you as golden. He's a really great guy, with more experience than you could ever measure! Sounds like it'll be a beautiful rod when completed.
