Fly Rod Review: Three Days With 3-Weights

April 21, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Gear reviewer Robert Morselli recently asked himself why 3-weight fly rods don’t get more attention. Is it because manufacturers tend to neglect the “in-between” sizes when it comes to features? Or is it because 3-weights are considered neither ultra-lights nor mid-range rods? Morselli’s takes on the St. Croix Legend Elite, Winston Boron IIt and Orvis Trout Bum remind us that at least some neglected 3s deserve more attention.
