Default Re: SAGE FLi

I purchased a Sage Fli last year and I love that rod. I got a 5wt 9' 2pc. Mine was $255 at Cabelas.
It's the fast light graphite, similar to the Legend Ultra.
I compared both before I bought:
- The Sage has a better rod taper. It's thick at the bottom and thin at the top. With no line on either rod, when I shake the LU it giggles too much..... tip heavy. But the Sage doesn't giggle.
- The FLi and the LU are the same weight..... exactly.
- The FLi seemed to cast much better for me
- The FLi is $60 cheaper than the LU.

I'm very happy with my FLi....... but I didn't compair it with a $700 rod!
