Re: any word on ZXL upgrade??
I think the ZXL is the best rod that Sage makes. A Winston WT doesn't need boron, and a ZXL doesn't need Generation #+ or Konnetic Technology to make it great. It is already a fantastic fly rod. New technology may improve rod strength and reduce weight, but at what cost? The flagship series of trout & saltwater rods, XP's, Z-Axis, One, Two, Three's, Xi2/3/4/5/6's, can be updated every year or two as Sage sees fit, however; it would be a shame to mess with a great rod like the ZXL and turn it into the VXP-Z-Axis/XL.
