Hey I was wondering if anyone here owned an Orvis T3 rod. If so what do you think of it? Which model do you have? Thanks for the help.

I've had the 905-2 pc TIP FLEX since they introduced them. It has been on 100's of trips, guide trips as well.
I normally fish 6x & even 7X tippet with midges, dropper rigs, poppers, streamers, it's just a good all around rod for me.
It's a durable rod, after 5 years of being in driftboats, jon boats, pontoons & toted up & down river banks, my son managed to break the tip on a snapping turtle, he thought his life was over ;D
While it weighs in a little more than a lot of rods, i don't notice the weight while fishing & it seems to have a little more UMMPPPHHH, when you need to get that extra 10' of line into the wind.
It works great for me, the next person may think it's a dog, you know how that goes.

I have the orvis t3 2-pc 9 ft 5wt mid flex 7.0 fly rod... i love it!

It is a little heavier than my others, but like grumpy said, it does give u the Power you need!
