The shorter bass rod is great for close in fishing. With the correct line, it accurately throws a big popper wherever you want it within 50 feet. The stiff butt will help the fishermen yank a fish out of the weeds. If I was to own one of these, it would be a topwater boat rod.

If you are looking for a more versatile rod for bass, I would consider a full length rod. Depending on how you line it, it can be cast at a variety of distances and be configured for different depths.

Thank you! Ive read that the sage bass is really only worth it if you do the tournaments. I think im going to go with the Orvis Access.. thats a pretty good price, and from what ive read, its a pretty good rod. Id go with the Helios if i was a more experienced fly fisherman.
