Can't stop progress I guess.
Anybody shed some light on this rod? Anybody cast with it yet? Is it worth the extra $20? Or should I just seek out an Echo 1?
Looks like your model has been replaced. It happens. Sage has been known to do that once in a great while.
Just help the economy and shell out the twenty extra.
