Default Sage ONE 6-Piece Spey rod review?

Hi, I'm currently using the Sage ONE 8136-4 and love the casting action, but air-line travel with a 4-piece spey is inconvenient to say the least. Does anyone have experience with the 6-piece 7136-6 or the 9140-6 ? Are the casting action similar to the 4-piece? I need to take an international flight to any salmon/steelhead waters and the ability to bring the rod on board as a carry on is a big plus. Thanks in advance.

Pulled the trigger on the 7136-6 and received it in the mail last weekend. After a few casting sessions with it, the rod is indeed as responsive and lively as advertised. It is actually much more enjoyable and crispier to cast as compared to the 8136-4. The bad news is that now, I'm also tempted by the 9140-6....

I waxed the ferrules well to make sure they don't come apart. Does anyone uses tapes for the ferrules? If so, which type? Does the normal electrical tape work well?

Best Regards.

Green painters tape works and leaves no sticky residue.
