Reviewed by Shrimpman from British Columbia on Tuesday, December 3, 2013The 3wt. 8.5 ft. FW is exactly the action I was expecting to best handle a 4DT line for small streams. Perfectly balanced, a soft tip and progressive bend for close range accuracy and feel, plus lots of power lower down to launch 60 foot casts with a smart double haul. The slender grip with swell farther back (Ross knows how to design universally comfy grips) best fits a large range of hand sizes, including my big mitts.
Unfortunately, this was one of those sold out items that mysteriously came back as "almost gone", which in this case meant a rod very much used bu somebody else before being returned. The scratched, dented, tube with bottom almost completely bashed off, dinged rod butt, sweat-darkened cork, and missing warranty card sure put a damper on my new rod excitement! If you are going to buy one of these "almost gone" FWs, make darned sure to include instructions for the shipper to inspect it carefully. This is my only negative STP experience, out of many, so I will still happily shop here.
Now, to utilize that pre-printed UPS return sticker...
Reviewed by Dick Fish from Colorado on Saturday, September 28, 2013Stiff enough to get some distance-- flexible enough to protect small tippetts with big fish.
Reviewed by Duncan from Maine on Wednesday, August 21, 2013I bought the Ross Essence FW in the 8'6" 3wt as a backup to the same rod I already own. It took a while to find the right line for it but ultimately I ended up with a DT 3. Despite being a 3wt, the 8'6" blank requires a fair amount of line beyond the tip before it comes to life. It's a great rod for those "far and fine" presentations and would probably perform well at shorter distances with a WF 4 line.
