Looking for a versatile fly rod......


I'm looking to move up to a more "premium" fly rod. I own a St. Croix Avid series 8'6" 5 weight, and a 3 weight, 8'6" Temple Fork Professional series rod. I use the 3 weight more, because I like the weight better.....It doesn't feel like I'm casting with a telephone pole!! I plan on going on a trip to Montana and Colorado next summer and I am looking for a versatile rod I can still make my go-to rod here in WV.
I'm looking into several rods, and am asking opinions of them....I do plan on casting them next week at Harry Murray's shop in VA.

Here are the "contestants:"

Orvis T3 8'4" 3 weight
Orvis T3 9' 4 weight
Orvis Zero Gravity 9' 4 weight

Winston Boron IIt 9' 4 wt
Winston Boron IIt 8' 3 wt
Scott G2 9' 4 wt

any opinions would be greatly appreciated...
