Yes The one I use the most is a sage 6 weight 690 RP 9'0'' I tried my Friends echo 5 weight 9'0'' last night and loved it not sure what exact model but it was nice. Also i need a reel on it but im trying to stay away from redington combos. I have about $500 bucks right now from work and graduation so thats pretty much my budget. Im not specifically looking for a sage just a good rod.
