Re: New Trout Fly Rod Search
Oft, welcome, yes I have some experience with sage. Ha.
The Flight is a fine rod. Honestly, the DS was a bit soft for my tastes, and is even softer after 15 yrs of use. The flight a tad heavier than the Z-axis, and not as fast in action.
You didn't say if it's for dryfly, or bobbercating?
Suck it up price wise. It is a lifetime warranty right?
I recommend finding a used Z (on line) for dries (or some indy fishing), and look into their 99 for pure Indy style.
The 6wt 99 rocks, with it's oversize guides, and stiffness.
I don't care to offend anybody, but I like rods made here.
Good luck in the search!!
Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.
