    Default New in the Sage lineup: Sage Circa

    This will be interesting to hear reviews once they are released to shops and the masses. Looks like the lengths of these rods are from the days of old: 279-4, 379-4, 389-4, 479-4, 489-4, and 589-4.

    What's the rage with these "snub nose" half wells grips? For larger rods I don't mind the full wells but on my trout rods I much prefer the half.

    I wonder what, if anything, this means for the ZXL?

    I think a Sage could be in my future.

    My guess is that these are the rods they accidently broke the tips on.

    I absolutely cannot wait to cast one of these. I held off on buying a zenith to wait for this rod.

    Sweet! Another rod to salivate over that I'll not be able to afford.
    But I watched the promo video earlier and I want to believe that Sage has a winner on their hands. This is a rod I could see myself doing everything with.

    Guess I'll keep watching for a used LL on the auction site.

    Hey, I've had GREAT luck on eBay this last year, bought three rods (two used, one a z axis 590-4 for $275.00 shipped... They were averaging over 425.00 used plus shipping, and I jumped on one. Just set some saved searches and be patient... And I would definitely get an LL, even if you plan on getting a CIRCA someday. I treasure my LL's like no other rods in my collection, have a 273-2 and a 4711-2, they're my babies

    Oh yeah, sold two rods, a reel, and a pair of shades on there too... I've learned a lot about the values they have on there and how to maximize what you get for your used gear.

    Careful, I'm addicted now. Convinced I'm going to find a San Miguel 2 for less than $400

    Ummm....Is that growth under Jerry's lip supposed to be hip? George Anderson said the ONE was a plate slapper when test casting, and the fly Siem's is casting hits the water pretty hard as well. Whether that's meant to demonstrate that the rod delivers with authority, or whether the Circa is a plate slapper would be nice to know. My ZXL will lay down a dry fly without disturbing the water like fly in the video, and at the same distances. It's also VERY accurate.

    Jaybo,
    I have to wonder if the snub nose grip is going to become Sage's new premium rod style grip.....

    I'm a fan of the snubby grip for some reason, even on the smaller rods... This definitely looks like an interesting rod, I'd be interested to try out what the "consistently slow" action is like. Hmm, I'll definitely be taking this one to the casting pond at the next Somerset show (as long as they make sure there's actually a proper-sized pond this year...).

    Thats exactly what I said when i started reading!
    I wish they would have shown a cast in real-time instead of all slo-mo.
