Very well constructed, decent action 6wt

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I briefly owned the 6wt., having found the action unfriendly to my tempo. The top couple of feet load easily and accurately put a fly out to about 40ft., but the lower rod seems disconnected from the top, being very stiff and not loading progressively. It may work very well over-lined and tossing weighted rigs, though. Cosmetics are very nice and the cork is a higher-grade burled variety than the standard. I find the largish swell too far forward to actually accommodate large hands; it positions my thumb ahead of the cork and on the blank.
An excellent rod if the odd grip shape and disjointed action suit you.
