Honestly, I sometimes get the stripper guide hung up for a second on my pre-ONE Sage rods. The ONE tube was designed to match the smaller diameter of the rod itself. Some might like that idea, and others might hate it. Tubes are a dime a dozen, and you can buy a larger diameter aluminum tube for less than $20 on ebay/Cabelas/other stores. I use a Sage 4-rod Cordura tube most of the time, as I don't want to carry multiple clanking tubes.
How do you like the rod???
