Default Anyone using a Sage 99?

I've had trouble casting lead head leaders with big flies,weighted flies, or sink tips and am wondering if anyone has experience with the Sage 99 series rods. They are made to flex further down the rod with a stiff tip for more open loops when using heavy nymph rigs so I guess they'd probably work well with heavy sink tips etc? Also wondering how they perform with floating lines. Thanks for any info.
