A nice surprise
Reviewed by Hunter from MT on Sunday, June 26, 2016
I purchased two rods, a FW for my girlfriend and the Diamond 3 WT for myself. I wanted a cheaper 3 WT that I would be willing to break in the trees and willows surrounding the smaller streams I will use it in. The first rod I tried was the FW and was immediately concerned as I knew that rod was going back without delay. It is nothing but a large stick with no action. I almost didn't even rig the Diamond up due to my disappointment with the FW. I'm glad I did, this rod is a world apart from the FW series. It has nice action, is light weight and decent materials. For the price of the Diamond on STP you can't go wrong. Your not buying a Sage One but you are also spending seven hundred less for a good performing rod.
