Default Re: Sage SLT vs. Sage ZXL

So I have the same question here. I have an opportunity to get one of these rods as well. Let me lay the scenario out

For sale so I can get either or both (dont tell the wife)
383-4SLT
376-4ZXL

I fish small streams in the rockis 99% of the time
Fish range from 8-15"
Majority of my fishing is Aug-Oct for dry fly fishing
40' is a long cast where I go, majority of the time I have maybe 10-20 of floating line out

Current quiver

Elkhorn 7' 1WT
Elkhorn 7'6" 3wt
Sage TXL 3710-3
Sage TXL 4710-3
Sage Z-Axis 490-4
St Croix LU 490-4
Orvis Hydros 690-4


Would you even consider getting either the SLT or ZXL or stick with what I have. Being so used to fishing "fast" rods and fishing where there is always wind, would I benefit from having a slower rod ?
