Default Help me choose between 2 rods?

Got a great deal on two rods. Planning to use on small streams.

Both are Greys Streamflex (NOT XF2)

1. 7'6" 3wt
2. 8" 4wt

Cant decide???

That's a tough call. Do you currently have a 5 wt? If so, I'd probably go with the three, but, than again, the 4 sounds good also.

I think you should sell the LL to me (at a ridiculously low price), and buy both of the Grey's! milt.

Ok, I picked up the 3wt today. Nice stick medium action but a touch faster than my Sage 6'9" 4wt LL. Looking forward to break it in on a nice WTS. I could not say no to the deal, brand new fo $160 out the door

I sure am still tempted to pick up the 8' 4t too same deal out the door too.
I am pretty impressed with these Streamflex's, cant beat them for the price even the new ones!!

I see an 11' Streamflex in the near future unless a Sage ESN gets there first

Thanks for your input guys!!

Fredy
