I picked up a 7'-6" 3 wt. from an Oregon fly shop just before Christmas. Beautiful little rod. Only complaint was the quality of the cork.
Not near as nice as the previous Sage rods that I have purchased, nor as nice as my new Zenith.
I called the shop and was told that all the ZXL rods in their inventory were the same so returning it for exchange wouldn't solve my issue. I am keeping this rod anyway. As I said, it's a quality rod.
