> > underlining Loomis Whisper Creek

Posts: 1I had been fishing a Loomis 4 wt GLX 8'6'' on a relatively large river and enjoyed using it. I've now switched to a Whisper Creek model and found it a little softer than I expected. I'm mostly throwing dries with small nymph droppers. Both rods handled trout up to 20" well--I think that's a matter of playing them off the reel and rod--for c&r. I am more concerned about throwing heavier nymphs and/or streamers. I recently tried underlining the Whisper Creek with a 3 wt line and I liked the response: it seemed crisper. But that was just lawn casting: it's too cold to get out on the river just now. I wondered if anyone else has tried underlining a rod in the Whisper Creek series (which I like even with a regular 4 wt line and a slowed down casting stroke).
