Mariner, I actually thought about getting that exact rod, The TfO finesse 7' 9" 3weight, but my trusty 7'6" St. Croix got snapped last year and I badly needed it to be replaced with another standard rod. So I went with the 7' 9" 4 weight TfO.

And since then, I broke two guides on my TfO (my fault), and fixed them myself. I used brown thread and bead head cement from my fly tying box, and surprisingly it looks ok and I don't think I'll have to re-do it any time soon. So now that rod has character, all the other guides are wrapped in green thread, it is my favorite rod.

If I had bought the 3 weight instead of a 4 weight, I would probably be wanting a 5 weight now.....but since I have the 4 weight, a 3 weight would feel like a smaller difference from a 4 weight, and I don't feel that I need a 5 weight now....this is craziness!!!!

I thank everyone for their responses,

last year when looking for a rod I used this site and a few people suggested TFO, so I struggled over the selection and finally made my choice. It was tough cause there were so many rods that appealed to me.

Thanks,

Jake

I forgot to add that Dorber makes a nice economical blank and has a good variety of lengths for 2 wts. I have a 10' 3 wt and its handled some pretty big fish. I plan to get more from them.

You can have a 2wt for under $100. If you don't build, you could have someone build it for you and I could even tie it up for you, but I am by no means of pro at it.

I have a 7' 2wt Bamboo that I really enjoy when I am fishing small flies. It is a replica of The Leonard Fairy Catskill made by Mike Brooks. I fished it allot this years fishing the Trico Hatch and had a blast catching 10" - 12" trout. It certainally is not a rod for everything but allot of fun in the right situation.

6"6" 2wt Winston IM6, is very good for small streams., paired with a CFO 123. I also like my Sage TLX 7'10" 1wt with a CFO 1.

I got a cheap rod made by spider only about 5 foot for little kids, when the spinning reel broke i put my fly reel only and it works real well. It was a light action pole

Ok so I did you the favor of reading through every rod on the 2wt shoot out and the best one(short one) as for as casting was the... Green-Stix Matrix AMF 662-2 6' 6", 2-Piece, MSRP $150.00 Only reason it didn't get a high score is because its kinda ugly. I don't care though but thanks to this thread now I want a 2wt. Once I can find a place to buy it... Id rather buy a blank though so I can make it nice. (found no online shops!)
