First I've heard that regarding the Sage ONE 6 wt. I've not fished it and recently bought the 9 wt., but the folks in my local fly shop fish that 6 often for smallies feel it's the best of the line and are throwing some sizable flies to these fish.

I own the 690-4 XP (as well as an 890 and 386 XP rods) and it'll throw some big stuff very well for me. As a FYI, the VXP is not the same as the XP, and I own the 7 wt. and fished a guides 5 weight for a day. Completely different rods.
