The 3wt. is light, snappy and can chuck 80' (indoors- I haven't had to distance cast it more than 50' outside) when pushed without collapsing.
And up close using her furled leader, is outstanding.
Now this was last week on a lake sitting in a kick boat. I think this rod along with my Scott F2 6'6" glass is about all I need for lakes, rivers and small streams in our area (Utah, Idaho, Montana)
So in essence, dries, nymphs, chironos, small streamers it's an ideal rod.
Built here in Utah, not overseas.
And for the price, it doesn't get better than this.
Mojo I am going to need your adress so I can invoice you for 1/2 the cost of an Allen ICON 10' 3wt. I love my ICON 10' 4wt, and everytime I convince myself I don't need the matching 3wt you chime in loving yours and the process in my brain starts all over again.
If I buy one I will place the blame squarely on you with my wife.....if Joanna calls you hang up immediately.
