Default Re: SAGE 5wt ZXL

If you're going to plunk down major dollars for a rod, and a store like LL Bean is willing to guarantee your satisfaction, it's something to consider. While Cabelas penalizes larger purchases with larger shipping costs, LL Bean tops out at $10. They also get things out much more quickly than Cabelas. I really like the folks at the local shop, and bought tying materials there today. I'm not advocating that we abandon the small shops, but since Winston seems to have jumped onto the big box bandwagon, it only seems fair to weigh your options. I drove 90 miles (round trip) to buy hooks and thread that could have been purchased mailorder, but that's just me....
