Re: Sage XP vs. Sage Z-Axis?
Frank, thanks very much for this helpful advice (which I don't think I could have obtained anywhere else). I have an opportunity to compare the castability of a 10' 4-section and a 9' 2-section XP, so I'll probably start there. I was interested in your thinking that the XP might be the better all-around performer, since I probably over-emphasized my need for a 7-weight to be just on windy Rockies big-water rivers (although that certainly is one need I'd want to fill). This rod would be a second travel alternative to my primary travel rod, a Sage SP589-5.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .
