Re: First Time Here
I can't say from personal experience, but I bet you'll hear from others. Another avenue of info is to go to google and type in, for example, "Sage RPLXi review". There's a lot of that kind of info out there.
I have cast Sage RPL's (the precursor of the RPLXi) and it was sweet.
Don't forget, unless you have one, you'll need a reel with a GOOD drag and a warm weather fly line. I recommend Sage (made by Rio) Equator Taper fly lines. You'll want 200 yards of backing on whatever reel you get/have, and as I said, it needs a GOOD drag.
OH...and leaders, don't forget leaders. 10 and 12 footers, 10 and 12 pound should get you through the day.
I'm sure once all the bonefisherman get home from work, you'll get more information (probably than you'll ever want or need! LOL). Sift through it all, take what makes sense, and leave the rest. If you can beg, borrow, steal or buy it, Chico Fernandez's book, Fly-Fishing for Bonefish, is great. there's a few others, too.
Ain't it fun getting ready for something new?
Have fun with it,
