Default Re: Need advice from some sages about Sages

I fish a Sage XP 5wt 9' 2pc and a old Winston IM6 5wt 8'6" 2pc, IMO both outstanding rods. The Sage is very nice on larger streams with larger flies and especially for nymphing (also use it for panfish and bass). The Winston is a slower rod that's quite nice on smaller streams with dry flies.
Unfortunately both have been discontinued for a while now although these particular configurations come up frequently on ebay though. I'm not sure the latest is necessarily the greatest, especially taking prices into consideration.
But then, if you have large quantities of money burning a hole in your pocket.........
