Default Re: The 2-Piece Sage RPL, 9 wt, And My Concerns

The guys commented on the $75 rod. I'll comment on the 8 vs 9 weight debate.

Here's what to think of.
  1. If you just want a stick for black bass or river Stripers, all you really need is an 8 weight.
  2. If you plan on fishing for Stripers in the open waters of the Delta, go with a 9 weight. It will give you some punch when the wind picks up.
  3. If you want to add King Salmon to the mix, get a 9 weight for the extra backbone.
