Default Re: 2013 5-Weight Shootout

Some have asked what happened to the Sage ONE.

I read the comments in the shootout. The one that jumped out at me was the comment that said the ONE needs a heavier line, like maybe a 6 wt.

That's exactly what I found. I have a 4 wt ONE (486), not a 5. With a 4 wt line, it's not good. With a 5.5 wt line (GPX), it's worlds better.

When I measured the ERN of the rod, it came out to 5.56. No wonder the 5.5 weight line worked better.
