The first time I saw one was on a friends Sage back 12 or 13 years ago. I thought at the time "um.....ugly." Then I cast it and did not like the way it felt. I have never tried nor been impressed with Sage since. It was an ugly uncomfortable rod, and it ruined me on them.
P.S. I still think they are ugly.
