Understand I hunt with a longbow, wooden arrows with feather fletches! lol
Just because you fish a lot doen't mean you are great or even good. It just means you fish a lot!!

I am starting to really like the idea of catching trout out of small streams and rivers on a 3wt bamboo rod, it just kind of seems the right way to do it!
I think it will be an experience that will change the way I trout fish with a fly rod.; But in turn, I won't be packing in the other graphite rods I own, there a lot of fun too!lol! If this rod turns out well, then I might build a graphite one for my faster mood days!!LOL! Always a pleasure Perry!

Bamboo is generally slower than graphite, but this is not always the case, I have built some very fast bamboo rods. Bamboo rods are better for light presentations especially the lighter models! They are very good for light tippets as well.
I fish small stream brookies and small bronze backs most of the time and I built a 6'3" 2wt 3 pc for the task it is a tiny presision instrument that will drive a lot of line, is deadly acurate and most importantly... it is a blast to fish with.
I fished fast bamboo rods that I didn't really care for, but someone else may prefer it? Each rod is different and some excell at certain types of fishing where as others shine at pretty much everything. The one area I think graphite excels is in the bigger rods such as large salmon rods (again, in general)I have cast some awesome bigger rods as well.

A bamboo arches from handle to tip-poetry. Some graphites do not arch at all!, well maybe a bit with a 5lb sinker?
The beauty is in the eye of the rodholder.

All the best
The measure of a man is not how many times he gets knocked down....but how many times he gets back up
