Streamflex XF2 11' 3wt vs. ESN 11' 3wt
« on: August 12, 2014, 04:55:13 AM »
I have a Streamflex XF2 10' 3wt, which I really like, and I'm considering getting an 11' rod. 

Putting aside the $ differences, I would greatly appreciate any insights comparing the Streamflex XF2 11' 3wt to the ESN 11' 3wt.

BTW, I live in Oregon so I will usually have the option of fishing more than 1 fly on this rod.

Thank you.

Cheers,

Bryan

I wish I could give you some feedback, but I've never tried the Streamflex.
For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Todd,

Thanks.  So far, I've not been able to connect with anyone who has fished them both.

Cheers,

Bryan

I have no experience comparing those either.
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

Chris,

Thanks.  I'm sure there's someone who has time on the water with both of these, I just need to connect with them!

Cheers,

Bryan
