Seems like a rod from the mid-80's with a moderate action.

Have you tried contacting Sage about the rod?

there is a thread on here showing the sage line up from '82 to current, and it lists the GFL as a early 80's graphite II, and the predecessor to the RPL wich came out in '85.

Looks in great condition!...and it's got SAGE printed on it so I'd say you got one heck of a deal; and a rugged rod for those rugged NFLD salmon you lucky dog you.

Me; I don't know anything about Sage rods but if our members had not already given you a date I would say mid 80's based on the 2 piece and overall appearance of the blank. If I had been so fortunate as to scoop that for 80 dollars I would simply line it up and go fishing with it. Age of a rod does not affect whether or not that rod will preform well and the only judge of its value will be you, the user.

A good buy indeed,

Ard
