    Absolutely! Or better yet, do what I do and buy 'em both!

    Again thanks for all the input. I just pulled the trigger and got the 9'6" VT2. It has the saltwater handle and softer action for nymphing so.... Both sound great so I guess you can't go wrong.

    The fli is a sweet, lightweight fast action. As stated above, a line rocket!

    I think you made the right call with the VT2. Fli is pretty damn heavy - although a nice rod as well.

    I have a Fli 3wt and have found I have had to load it with a 4WF line to make it act like I want/need it to.

    Of the three 3wts I have, it is the least used and only brought out if I want to chuck double nymph rigs on a small stream/river.

    My 6wt 9'6" VT2 with saltwater reel seat and fighting butt has been a great rod. I've landed summer steelhead, coastal cutts, hundreds of silvers, pink salmon, and blackmouth/adult chinook with this rod. Easy casting.
