Re: Clearwater and Sage One 4wt
I can attest to the warranty and customer service of Sage as I've had nothing but good experiences. I also really like their rods. That being said I couldn't appreciate the difference in mid range to upper level rods for quite a while. Then as others have mentioned the preference of a rod varies greatly amongst the individual. If your just as satisfied with the cheaper rod then that should be your answer.
Besides if you stick with the sport your going to be collecting lots of rods in the near future. You can always upgrade when you appreciate them more.
