Guidance for new 8 wt.

Postby Temo » Mon Mar 26, 2007 11:22 pm

Hi all,

I've been looking at picking up an 8 weight I could use on the San Francisco beaches for stripers & leopard sharks, delta for stripers, and on the rivers for salmon and steelies...

I was thinking about getting a tip flex T3 from Orvis. Looking at the tip flex to allow me to cast into the SF and delta winds. It's running about $550 and would be looking for something up to and around that amount.

Does anyone have experience with the T3 tip flex or similiar in Sage, Winston, etc... ?

Temo, I have the T3 tip flex in a 5-weight. I like it. In fact, I had never considered buying a T3 until a float trip on the Snake several years ago, where the guides -- Orvis-endorsed -- had it as their go-to rod. I pounded the banks all day long with weighted streamers and was impressed with how easy the rod was to cast. So I bought one.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the reply. From what i've been able to read and research, it looks like the T3 is what I'm look for. Thanks again.
