Default Re: BIG Bass fly casting help

My Bluegill Sage Bass rod is 3 7/16 oz and I have a Abu Garcia Conolon 5-6 wt 8' 3oz flyrod that is the same diameter as the Sage Bass rod so its about a 6 wt.
The Sage feels lighter and is well balanced the Abu Garcia is very tip heavy,they cast very near the same but I would never use the Garcia I would get fatigued.
But I agree Nick the OTHER Sage Bass rods are overkill for LMB,heck I have seen a video of a guy catch a 40lb Golden Dorado with the Sage Bass Smallmouth rod in Argentina.
