bonefish41 will become famous soon enough
Default It's Another Opin 10 wt TCR Yes it's pricey BUT

IMO: My 10 wt home built TCR is the best flyrod I have ever fished with...I have fished with other sages, my winstons 11 and 12, and orvis, scott, loomis and winston 10 wts..this year with my reel and line...this is FLA keys flats and smallie river fishing for testing and comparison...now I cannot say the same for the TCR 6, 8 and 9 in similar comparisons...the difference between the above makes were not, in those wts, as remarkable as the 10 wt TCR...it was the permit rod but it also caught bonefish and tarpon 60-80... Now the BUT...The full retail is 780.00. the blank from fly shop and parts from REC came to 468.00...now if you shop for kit pricing the total package can be at or about 410-420...it's only with kit pricing can you cut some slack off full tilt retail 'cause sage is fair traded aka fixed price retail
IMO home built high end rod/blank is the best bang for the buck
