Default Re: Is it really worth it ?

Well, being the last fella to buy the $700 rod I should probably respond. I do it for no other reason than because I can and it brings me enjoyment.

Why ride a Harley when a Moped will do?
Why drive a Cadillac when a Yugo will do?
Why live in a house when an apartment will do?
Why eat a steak when a hotdog will do?

A fly rod, or any fishing pole for that matter, is just a glorified stick. So why even bother with any of it?

Life is filled with these little things and I could go on and on and on...

As odd as it may sound, I feel different when I am fishing with one of my Sage (or other) rods. I have fished other, less expensive rods and they do not have the same feel. I'm not talking slow/med/fast action either. It is something more primal, I guess, than that. Something down in my souls that speaks to me.
