New in the Sage lineup: Sage Circa
This will be interesting to hear reviews once they are released to shops and the masses. Looks like the lengths of these rods are from the days of old: 2794, 3794, 3894, 4794, 4894, and 5894.
What's the rage with these "snub nose" half wells grips? For larger rods I don't mind the full wells but on my trout rods I much prefer the half. I wonder what, if anything, this means for the ZXL?

I think a Sage could be in my future.

Re: New in the Sage lineup: Sage Circa
My guess is that these are the rods they accidently broke the tips on. :icon_mrgr

Re: New in the Sage lineup: Sage Circa
I absolutely cannot wait to cast one of these. I held off on buying a zenith to wait for this rod.

Re: New in the Sage lineup: Sage Circa
Sweet! Another rod to salivate over that I'll not be able to afford.
But I watched the promo video earlier and I want to believe that Sage has a winner on their hands. This is a rod I could see myself doing everything with. Guess I'll keep watching for a used LL on the auction site.

I've learned a lot about the values they have on there and how to maximize what you get for your used gear. Careful, I'm addicted now. Convinced I'm going to find a San Miguel 2 for less than $400 
Re: New in the Sage lineup: Sage Circa
Ummm....Is that growth under Jerry's lip supposed to be hip? :D George Anderson said the ONE was a plate slapper when test casting, and the fly Siem's is casting hits the water pretty hard as well. Whether that's meant to demonstrate that the rod delivers with authority, or whether the Circa is a plate slapper would be nice to know. My ZXL will lay down a dry fly without disturbing the water like fly in the video, and at the same distances. It's also VERY accurate.
Jaybo, I have to wonder if the snub nose grip is going to become Sage's new premium rod style grip..... 
Re: New in the Sage lineup: Sage Circa
I'm a fan of the snubby grip for some reason, even on the smaller rods... This definitely looks like an interesting rod, I'd be interested to try out what the "consistently slow" action is like. Hmm, I'll definitely be taking this one to the casting pond at the next Somerset show (as long as they make sure there's actually a propersized pond this year...).

I wish they would have shown a cast in realtime instead of all slomo. 
Re: New in the Sage lineup: Sage Circa
Interesting video, looking forward to actually trying one of the Circa rods out.
