Re: Sage One 4wt sweet spot?

The 486 is the sweetest of the 4wts in the One for sure. Check out the thread comparing this model to Radian 854.

Re: Radian, what line works best for you ???

Rio Gold is the best casting and most versatile for the Radian.

On my 906 Radian, I do use Perception but only to throw streamers.

Re: One vs Radian 8'-6" 4wt.

It is true that the Sage One has a little better feel in the 8'-6" 4wt but definitely not in the 9'-0" 4wt. The 9 footers in the Radian and One 4wts are very similar in comparison to 9' 5 weights.

Re: What is Scientific Anglers doing with their fly lines?

Yes, I was able to pick up some SA Mastery Trout Textured lines at 50% off. I love these lines for my Scott G2's. I got mine through Stillwater. They were on sale and had a deal that extended the...

Re: One vs Radian 8'-6" 4wt.

I think our conversation and this information was geared more towards people who have already cast either the Radian or the One in the 8'-6" 4 wt but didn't have a chance to cast them side by side. ...

Re: One vs Radian 8'-6" 4wt.

The 8'-6" 4wt One is definitely a different animal in the typically stiff Sage One series. The 486 is much softer and a super sweet caster with plenty of feel and light tippet protection. In my...

One vs Radian 8'-6" 4wt.

A few of us have discussed the merits of both the Scott Radian and Sage One. These are both truly fantastic rods and the 8'-6" 4wt is definitely a staple in most people's quivers here in the...

Re: Scott G, G-2, G-3 thread...

I absolutely love my Radian 905 and 906FB. I don't know that the 4 is entirely different but rather it's what I use the 4 for that is the real difference. The Radian shines when distance and...

Re: Scott G, G-2, G-3 thread...

I have to admit that I agree with George on this. I love the 486 and the 690 in the One but never warmed up to the 905. As much as I like my Radian 8'-6" 4wt, I do admit that sometimes I regret not...

Re: Scott G, G-2, G-3 thread...

I have to admit, the One 486 was fantastic and noticeably different from the 9 footers. For some reason Sage softened the tip up on this model and it is really a sweet stick. However, our opinions...

Re: Scott G, G-2, G-3 thread...

I agree with the comments that Scott had 2 very complimentary fresh water rods series with the G2 and Radian. I have always been a fan of the Scott rod aesthetics but have also felt very comfortable...

Re: Anyone thinking about getting the Sage MOD rod?

As a consumer, your insight and perceptions as a dealer are spot on. I have moved away from Sage for all of the reasons you have stated. Over the last 3 years, I have become a devout Scott fan. ...

Re: Anyone thinking about getting the Sage MOD rod?

I cast a G2 884/4 this weekend and it seems to be a perfect compliment to my 854 Radian.

Sage seems to be all over the place these days throwing out quite a few models. I do think the fit and...

Re: Anyone thinking about getting the Sage MOD rod?

Thanks for the input. yes, I am really looking for a rod to compliment my Radian. The G2 seems to do that quite well. I am looking for a better dry fly and small nymph rod for smallish type...

Re: Anyone thinking about getting the Sage MOD rod?

I've been looking at the 9' 4wt sage Mod to compliment my 8'-6" 4wt Radian. Not sure yet but I am leaning towards a Scott G2 8'-8" or 8'-4" 4 wt instead.

Re: Abel Sealed Drag

How is the balance on the 905 Radian? I currently use an Abel Super 4N on mine and find it to be about perfect. The published weights on the reels we are discussing are:

Hatch 4 Plus 5.2oz

Re: Best fly line for Orvis Helios 2 9ft 5wt

Outside of the Orvis lines, I really like the performance of Rio Gold on the H2 tip flex rods. Does great as an all purpose trout line.

Re: Orvis Recon and H2 tests vs Sage Accel and One

I had an opportunity to demo the Recon this weekend. I cast the 9'-0 4wt.. I really liked the rod. Incomparision to the H2 904 tip flex, this rod has a lot of similarities. As others have said,...

Re: Abel reel choice

The 6N would probably be OK on the G2. In my opinion the 5N is not a great 6 weight reel due to capacity limitations.

On my Radian's which are much lighter than the G2 series is use a 4N on my...

Wink Re: If the Sage One 5 wt is so great .... ??

The 906 Radian may be the best of the entire line in my opinion. I own both a Radian 906 FB and a Sage One 961. I thought the 6wt One couldn't be beat until I fished the Radian 906. Both are...

Re: Abel Super 3N?

Thanks for the reply. The challenge with some of these great reels that Abel and Hatch are making is getting them scaled down for trout applications. I should say scaled down in terms of weight. I...
