3 is fine, it's near the upper limit of that rod. Try 3.5 and the tip will turn into mush. Sort of collapse when you try to push it.

I wouldn’t use a 3/4-4 legend to throw chunks in fact I never even tried to with mine, but it’s great for 1-2.5 ounce buck tails, poppers, darters, bottles etc. I don’t find it to be that great of a pencil popper rod eithe as it’s very stiff and it’s not to great with light bombers. I prefer more parabolic rod like Loomis IMX surf or old flexi Lamis... Gsb 1201m for pencils but I still do throw pencils with the Legend. 

No1 said they were using it to anyways.

And here i was just starting getting into pencils, damnit. You think its too stiff, i thought it was great albeit a teeny tiny bit to moderate of an action.

All depends on how ya cast

That is correct.  The Legend took some used to......that rod takes a full lean into a cast up to the point of where it's about directly over my shoulder, at which point i lay off and let the rod do the rest.

 

I'm able to launch 1 - 3 oz. lures and plugs to China using this technique.  :th:
