I have a Flight 890-4 and a VXP 990-4. I like them both but I haven't used the VXP yet except for practice casting...been fishing situations too rough for a nice rod

Default Re: Who uses Sage rods?

I have been fishing Sage rods since they were Fenwicks and could not compile an accurate list if I tried but my current go-to #5 is ONE. However, with much respect, I am not a Sage junkie...I am not a brand loyalist in general. I have great rods from many other designers and companies big and small, American and off-shore, well known and esoteric or out-of-buisness names.
