I built a 3 weight fast glass blank, and it has been my goto rod. Most of the time I will nymph fish, using 2 nymphs and a indicator. The rod will cast the rig like a dream.

you at Epic do not stay lazy :-)
What a great adventure you offer for someone to find the joy of building your own fly rod.
There is only one rod that I have liked more to fish with than the ones I managed to make. That was the G.Loomis IMX with Gary´s signature and slightly remade by him. 9foot 4-piece #4 rod of the 80ies. Been looking for a replacement, but with no luck. One blank from Kilwell was close, and Sage, but for heavier line # 7. Well ok, I have to admit that there are so many great rods out there, so this is always just a very personal choice and feeling. But when you find it, it helps to create a natural handling of the rod with a feeling like the tip of the rod is an extension of your hand, wrist and arm and you forget about the rod as a tool…
Good luck with your project and tight lines.
See you on the water
