I usually believe that all the hype is just marketing, but in this case it may be justified. Hope so as I am starting a new build on a Sage "One" Switch 7116-4 next week.
I just bought a Sage ONE Switch 7116-4. As this is my first switch/spey rod I'm sure I won't be a good judge of how good the rod is. I haven't even cast it yet, I'm waiting for open water. Looking forward to it tho.
I checked out the TU membership deal. Too bad its a 5 wt. I already have one and its lucky if I use it more than 4-5 times a year. Now if it was a 8wt then I'd be more inclined. Even tho I already have 3 8wts I'd be interested in another. I use my 8wts probably close to 100 days a year.
