As it turned out. I am quite the bully when it comes to whacking the stick (power application would be english proper) and it didn't suit me as well as I had hoped. I ended getting a Sage ONE (a dark theme is brewing in my rod storage as this is the third) as for some reason that rod really likes me
Regardless of it being a single hander or (now) double hander. That's not saying that Winston dont make great rods, because they make great rods. For some reason Sage just seem to agree with me more. Different folks, different strokes.
