all get my vote, all high end, all us made, all med-mfast, all can be had like new for about 2 bills. help keep your forum buddies from starving.
I am not connected to the seller, but I would jump all over the Biit in the classified. Also love the TXL and SLT models.
As MIke said, if I needed another 3wt I'd already bought the biit in the classified, one of the best graphite 3wt out there, if not, I'd go with with the CT or glass..... I don't understand why people would want anything but a medium action in a 3wt, if you want a fast 3wt...just use a 4wt, Makes no since to me.
Echo Carbon. $179 I think. Great rod and loads of fun.
I have a TFO I won in a drawing. Paired it with a Ross Flywater reel, Since I don't fish it that often, it works for when I do and I have, luckily, less than a hundred bucks tied up in it. It's a fun rod for crappie and bluegill.
I got myself a sweet Redington CT - 8' 3WT 6 Piece. This model cost a bit more because is a six piece and the closeout price is 109.99. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
I have the same one and is a blast to fish small streams with and packs down very small. Always goes in my hiking pack.
I like my 3 wt Redington CT rods, even though they are 4-pc. and have to be lashed to the outside of my pack. Got the 7'6" and the 8'6". I haven't cast hardly any other 3 wts rods, though, so my opinion most likely only carries Zero wt.
Ross Essence FC.I have a 3wt and it's my prefered stick.Run around 179.00-199.99.Great action.I think they're the best deal for the money out there.
I know you stated you like med/fast rods, and gave some direction as intended purpose. On the off chance you're also considering small streams, you might think about Ed's 7'6" 3/4 Steffen. IMO, in lighter line weights you want a medium action, like glass. Steffens are typically on the crisp side of medium and his would be a killer rod. The problem I find is that most graphite 3 or 4 weights are really 4s and 5s. Again, all this is especially true if you're thinking about smaller environments where you need to cast short some of the time.
I might jump on it myself but the "B wallet" is low at the moment.
thats alot of money for an imported rod from a reel co.
of course, the same could be said about sage reels
Don't care where it's from,just care how it feels and it feels like butter.I got a scott 6wt and a winston 4wt that still fall second to my Ross.Much like a woman,feel means everything.
some guys might pay big bucks for an imported woman too
I owned a Scott SAS 653 for years. . . until I recently sold it on ebay. It was a SWEET little rod. 2 piece, 6'-6" 3wt.
The internal ferrule system allows for the smoothest transition of power in your casting stroke, and at the same time minimized the rod's overall weight. It looks like you can still buy them online between $275.00 and $376.00 brand new.
