Re: Sage One 9'6" (5WT) vs Scott Radian 9'6" (5WT)
I agree that casting and fishing are two different things, however, like blueco said, it may prove difficult to get a shop owner to lend you a rod to fish with. The thing is, the radian and the one are very similar and both will perform well as nymphing sticks. Given that you can't fish the rod first, it may be best to go with which ever rod feels the best in your hands. They are both high performance blanks, you will probs be happy either way. I wouldn't get too hung up on which will fish better, all you can do is get a feel for which one you like better, and take it from there, enjoy your new stick!
