    Looking for a 3 wt and the best light line to go with it

    go for the 389-3 LL or vps-lt(same blank) , you cant go wrong,
    i got a 389vps-lt(couldnt find a LL), and love it to death, it really does it all, by the way if u r at it, buy a cortland classic Sylk dt3f to go with it, only the best light line out there, thinner straighter suppler, BETTER, and thus the best subtle presentation, if u have ever cast a real silk line, this is the next best thing (without the hassle :thumb: )
    the marryat cmr 3/4 balances it great, and has a great drag.
    i got mine in bronze

    if you cant find the LL or vps lt, the SLT is a good second

    good luck

    There's a new 389-3 VPS-lt for sale on E-bay right now if I remember correctly. They also have a Winston LT 389 5 piece for sale as well.

    THe BIIX is a great rod, but much faster action than the LL

    thanks, joe. i have the BIIx in a 5 weight and love it. over the last year it's become my "go to" trout rod. funny, though, i don't think of it as being all that fast. it's power is deceiving 'cause it's so light and sensitive. so... i figured i'd go cast the 3 weight. gotta hit some shops once this rain abates.

    i cast a 490 slt today next to my vps-lt 389, and i must say the slt is way stiffer, but casts really nice too, just not the same feel

    good luck on your choice
