Don't sell yourself short, anyone can learn to cast and feel a rod load if you over-line it by 2 line wts. :rofl::rofl::rofl:
Just kidding, I actually have no idea what I am talking about, except that my 9' 3wt is the best 5wt I have ever owned.
I am being serious....my 3wt RPL is my new favorite chironomid rod.
Several years ago I came across a deal on an RPL+ 2wt blank. Figured I'd try my hand at rod building. It was my first (and last) attempt. Turned out like crap. I've never been very good with glue. Funny thing, though. It's the best small stream rod I've ever cast.
Since I built it I've been looking for its replacement. The thing's ugly and kinda heavy for that size. I want something delicate and a little wispy. Something modern in a 4 piece. I've probably bought and sold three or four 2 and 3wts. Couple pretty high end, even. But I just can't find one that casts as well as that old, ugly, POS RPL+.
