    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.
