Perfect balance between feeling and casting action. 11FT 3WT work perfect for casting heavy nymphs in moderate wind from Patagonia, Chile. (Of course in heavy winds you can’t throw anything when you are euronymphing). It is not as sensitve as the Sage ESN, but still works pretty well and it allows to cast wider range of nymph/weights than the ESN.
It can fight big trouts (3kg) with no problem. Using Cortland 4x tippet. I assure you that worth the money. It is a great rod for big rivers and big trouts. For smaller ones I’d use a smaller size 2WT.
