11' 3wt 5pc

Recommended Posts

Another 11' 3wt 5pc euro rod out of the shop this morning. This one with dark green main & gold trim, lots of burl corks in the grip, and carbon fiber reel seat.

Rich, it is a bit more slow than the 10' one. The 10' one has a 4.5 tip top, and the 11' one has a 4.0 tip. So it has a longer, but thinner taper which gives it more flex. It's a great rod for nymphing, but somewhat pigon-hold to that IMO. I was thinking about building one for myself for dries on the wider sections of the Au Sable, but I don't do much under size 14'ish, and I don't do a ton of nymphing, so I may not do it. Great rod for euro though, just not really my thing is all. It's really more of a euro rod than anything else IMO.

Just being honest is all.
