Only reason I might consider selling is I also have the 10.6 3# ESN and I have grown fond of the longer rod

Another thing that hasn't been mentioned is the actions of some of these rods. The slt has quite a progressive action, very typical of a fly rod. The H2 and ESN are a bit different, it's only really the tips that have the initial give. I'm not saying they are super fast pokers, but eg, I have the 103 ESN, and to me it's like a 4 weight rod with a 2/3 weight tip section.

I'm lucky to have the chance to purchase either a SLT or H2, but unfortunately not for a few weeks yet. Ideally I'd be looking for something to purchase a little closer to the weekend if anybody has anything? If not, I'll just have to be patient!

you are right about actions mike mike all the rods mentioned are very different,

the new ESN has more of a medium action and is not as tippy as the the old ESN

the new ESN is slower and not as powerful as the SLT,

the SLT is slower and less powerful than the H2 and the H2 faster through two thirds of the rod with a very sensitive tip.

all good rods but all different.

I know what i mean if this doesn't make much sense to anyone else
