Default Sage Flight opinions

What are the opinions of the members of the Sage Flight series of rods? I like them a lot (9ft 5w, 7w, 10w) but price at the time was a high motivation as they were all closeout buys.

Always like the opinions of the more experienced anglers!

Most important , you like them . Fish don't care and the guy fishing down from you can't tell what rod you are using. If you can catch with it and it fits your style of cast that's the most important. I don't think Sage makes a bad rod or they would not be number one in sales. I own several Sage rods and like them all but I have some other brands that I like also.i have friends who fish other rods I don't care for but they like . Great.

Welcome to the forum.

I've got two Flights, 6 and 8 weights, and I really like them. I also got mine on closeout buys, which is how I buy most of my rods. I've used the 8 weight for salmon and for bonefish and it was fine.

That said, I like my 8 weight VXP just that much better--bit smoother casting, for lack of a better description. And now they're on close out, and I'm really thinking of picking up another one.
