question ..if you built on one of these blanks are they true to advertised line weight? Has anyone built or tried the 7.5' 3wt?

Hello, the DB 7’6” 3 wt. is a faster action rod. It cast a 3 wt. line reasonably well but if you want a deeper loading, slower glass feeling a 4 wt. line would be better with this rod. Its more of a 3.5 to 4 wt. line blank not a true 3 wt.

The 6 weight is also fast and more of a seven than a six.
