    I *love* my 9ft 3wt Z-Axis - best allround 3wt rod I have ever owned.
    it is a fast actioned 3wt - picked it up from another Forum member who thought it was too fast.
    Enjoy!

    Which one you looking for? I have a 9ft 7wt that I don't use.

    I got my first custom built rod recently... absolutely love it.. it's a 5wt Z-axis. It certainly sways me to never want to fish my factory rods again.. I'm currently busy gearing myself to start building my own rods and can't wait.. I'm pretty certain that as soon as I do, I'll only fish custom rods..

    There is a beauty to craftmanship, and if you that way inclined and enjoy building things and designing things..then custom rods are the way forward!

    5wt Z-Axis is the way to go...still my favourite go-to rod for most situations. That rod can do it all...nymphing, dry fly, trout, yellows, stillwater, river...very versatile and beautiful action. It's a winner!
