Default Re: SAGE FLi

Hmmmm.....I bought a Sage FLi 9' 6wt about a week ago. After I discovered
a deep scratch on the butt section, it was destined to be returned. I did, however, give it about 30 minutes of casting time. With a SA GPX 6wt line,
the FLi seemed a bit stiff for my tastes. It certainly cast nicely at close
range, but at 40-50 feet, it lacked much feel. It came to life at 60 feet, but
that's about all I was able to get out of it. I would like to have tried the 5wt
FLi with a 6wt line.

I've heard the Launch isn't as fast, and maybe that means not as stiff. If that's the case, I might give one of those a shot. I'm looking for another
7 or 8 wt.
