I need to get a 7 WT. rod and am looking at the Three Forks rod only cause I won't be using it that much compared to my 5 weights. I WOULD usually be getting a better rod but just don't think I need to with a 7 wt. Does anyone know how fast they are and will they handle the SA streamer lines?

Kb, welcome to the TN forum. Sorry but I have no experience with those rods. I don't even know who makes them.

See the thing is I already have a Sage RPL 690 as well as an XP 590 and a 586, a VPS 586 a LL 4711 a SPL 383 and a TFO 6 ft. 2wt. I wouldn't even think of a cheap rod but getting older now and I don't know how much I will use it any more. Thats why I am looking at the Three Forks rod.

I don't have the 7-weight but I have owned the 7' 6" 3-weight and 8' 6" 5-weight for many years now. Being what you might call a "budget angler" (i.e., I don't have a lot of $$$), they have been my primary rods. And I can honestly say, as someone who has been throwing flies for 29 years now, they work surprisingly well for the price, and you sure don't fret too much if you break one (been an issue for me at various times...). I can cast a good long way with them, accurately in tight situations, and fish sure feel good on them. What's not to love for the price?

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
