The T3 certainly seems a bit slower than the XP to me, but I confess I was casting a 5-wt. T3 and the XP I have cast is a 6-wt., so I advise you to test cast them both for yourself. Both rods are very well made, I don't know that I would choose one over the other on that basis. Honestly, I can't think of many "high-end" rods, or even mid-priced ones, these days that aren't well made; there's simply too much competition out there to have that kind of carelessness. Rods made by Sage, Loomis, T & T, Orvis, CND, St. Croix, TFO, Winston, and Albright are all quite nice.
