Default Re: sage vs burkheimer spey rods

Can't make a comment on the Burkie. Never fished one.

I demoed a Z-Axis 8134-4. It casts a line very well. I was comfortable casting a 500 grain Rio Skagit. It bent the rod plenty far enough to cast some #2 Starlight Leeches. Pulling a type 8 head out of the water was rather easy with this rod. It's hard to comment on the fish fighting backbone since the biggest fish that I caught was an 18" wild Rainbow.

One of my friends prefers this rod with a 550 grain Rio Skagit. He prefers his rods to bend all the way down to the handle.
