Been looking for Scierra hm3 6/7 but no luck.
Now looking at Wychwood RS not the comp but RS or RS2.
Think comp action wouldnt suit, anyone fishing with these rods
could advise on action, ad says on slower side of fast.
Thanks for any advise. John

I have a 9`#6 RS that I bought after it was runner up at the EFTTEX show as best fly rod 2016 (Sage X was the winner). I´m not sure but I think they just made a new version of the rod.
When I received the rod - bought in UK - and assembled it I was really impressed by it´s swing weight, it feels super light. The action of the rod is a problem for me - it might not be a problem for you - it´s "hingey" aka it feels like all the flexing in the rod happens in a very defined area. Personally I like a progressive action. The fittings of the road are okay / good.
