Without knowing where you're located, what you're fishing for, or your experience level, I'll say get the Sage. It's made in the USA, and is a very good for anglers with little or lots of experience.

Default Re: which rods

Beulah Classic, Redington Classic Trout, Allen Myth,

Or put all the names in a hat, pick out one and go with that. There are people who are happy fishing each model you listed. They all like them for different reasons.

If you can actually cast the rods listed then spend some time with each of them and pick one based on which one works best for you. Then you know you got the right one for you. Which is the only thing that really matters.
