finding the sweet spot

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Duncan from Maine...on weekends after ice out. on Monday, April 28, 2014
I just picked up two six weights for my wife and son to use during our upcoming trip to Labrador. For lawn casting, I strung one of them with a Wulff TT6 and the other with a Wulff TT5....what a difference! With the 6 weight, the rod loaded deeply and easily with only 20 to 30 feet of line in the air. However, as I started hauling more line, the action became quite sluggish. After switching to the 5 weight line, I found the Diamond still loaded easily at short distances, but was much more at home keeping 50 to 60 feet of line in the air. Just for kicks, I tried a Wulff TT4. No problem! This setup would be great for far and fine presentations on windless days.
In a nutshell, use a six-weight line for novice anglers working shorter lines and a five-weight (or even a four-weight) for hauling more line.
Fit and finish way above the paltry sale price. Only low point would be the "diamond" inlay in the blank, but then again, that's probably why these are on closeout.
