Default Re: Sage Launch and FLi opinions

It's over. I finally made a final decision in my rod selection. My local pro shop guys are still probably looking over thier shoulders for me returning another rod! After trying out thier entire stock of Sage, Echo, Scott, Winston and Reddington fly rods in 100+ degree heat in the parking lot I narrowed my search down to 2 rods. I was tossed up between the Winston Vapor and the Sage FLi. The Sage FLi has a light feel to it and I liked the faster action, but it doesn't come in a 8'-0" 4wt-4 piece rod. The Winston Vapor performed a little better for me and also felt light in my hand as well. End result, a Winston Vapor 4wt-4 piece rod and a Galvin OB-3 reel with headstart fly line for me.
