Re: Clearwater and Sage One 4wt
I own several SAGE rods but the Orvis warranty is unbeatable. No questions asked, repair or replacement for 25yrs. I believe SAGE requires the owner to pay~ $50 for any repair. A few times that I have called the SAGE customer service, I got the impression that they weren't as good as the Orvis (but it could be the specific person I happened to get when I called)
I suggest, getting the Clearwater & using the money saved towards a decent reel / line or towards a fishing trip.
