Re: Sage Discontinues Z-Axis
I saw a Ford Pinto the other day, still running.
So why would anyone want to own a Ferrari?
Sure I'm a little irked that they change models so often, I'm still smarting from having the XP discontinued. A little notice, and I'd have bought a couple for the future.
If you can actually tell the difference between models, and years, you will be able to feel the advances/changes from model to model.
The good news when they discontinue a model, is you can get one for less.
For many years, I've been using "last years rod". Saving money, and fishing well, is a nice combo.
I get to test drive a lot of rods on water/fish.
In my opinion, you can fish with an alder stick if you just want to eat.
But for pure pleasure of casting, a higher-end rod does please. (Although it doesn't guarantee a good cast.)
I can fish anything I'd like to, but will stick with Sage for a while yet. (Even though warranty cost went to $75.)
Just heard of a bamboo rod selling for $5000. No warranty either.
Now that is out of my range.
We each have a sweet spot for spending/fishing.
Don't worry what others are doing, how many rods/brands they own etc......just go fish.
