Default I dont quite understand the reasoning behind SAGE'S BASS ROD..........

Specifically the length. I understand that they made it just under the legal length to allow for tournament use but is that just marketing rubbish?? I mean, how many people are truly going to whip out there fly rod in a bass tournament?? Probably not many if any at all.

I know people enjoy using the 7'11 length for fishing here around the mangroves for smaller redfish, snook, tarpon, etc..It allows greater precision when casting.

Another question. Couldn't I just pickup a TFO 9ft. 8wt with some 10-11wt line and achieve similar results as the SAGE BASS ROD? Wouldnt I get even more distance on my casts with wind resistant flies and poppers on a 9' rod??
