your sage model has a price point of $410. at that price for a saltwater 8wt...I would look to the used market 8 wt Sage XP, 8wt Winston Biix, Sage Xii, Loomis GLX, GLX crossC...try also some of the older high models that came in 3 piece or 2 piece if you don't need 4 piece...I carry on three piece...these older models particularly loomis and sage can be significantly discounted...IMHO if you are a salt then get an 8 wt with guts in the butt and fast...you will learn to cast it and while learning overline it to 9 to get the feel of a load then gradually shift to an 8...
