Re: New Rod
Someone posted their experience casting both the Z-Axis and Sage Flight
rods recently. He said they were very close, with the big difference being
the components. It seems the Flight is made in the USA, so the price is right!
I haven't fished the Flight, but have fished the Z-Axis and Fli in 9' 6wt. The
Fli seems more suited to a 7wt line, and the Z-Axis transmits more feel to
my hands. I actually bought the Fli, but returned it. I would say
the biggest difference between the Fli and Z-Axis is that the Z-Axis has more
action in the tip section. If the same holds true for the Flight, I'd recommend
Being able to try these rods on the water can be a real bonus in making
your decision. I bought mine from a store that has a return policy.
