Right on, now we know where you are coming from, I agree 100% about the recapturing things from the past. Specially the ones I had no idea what I had.
I had one of the first Sage Discovery. Not a real expensive rod , but still at around $200. and this was pushing like 20 years.
The originals were AWESOME! the new ones are okay, but don't compare at all.
I traded several years after I bought it for something I thought was new and improved.....silly me!
Anyway, I am starting to collect the glass or I should say me and Mojo. Got quite the collection now.
Plus I got to brag a little that MOJO does build some beautiful GLASS RODS.
Nice have you here, sit back and stay awhile.
