    I've seen them on sale too, seems like an ideal time to snatch one up if you're in need of a new rod.
    The article says, about comparing Sage and Winston, "This is just like the Ford vs. Chevy debate."

    Well, no. It's more like the BMW vs. Porsche debate.

    Something tells me the other rod you have might become the "spare". That's fine setup you've got there.

    Winston claims the GVX is a fast action rod. Does experience with the rod bear that out or is it really more of a medium or medium fast rod compared to say the Sage line-up?

    I haven't cast a GVX but my experience with other models tells me it's more like medium-medium fast by Sage standards.

    My 9' 4wt just arrived yesterday from MRFC. I don't think there is a better deal out there for 300. If it is anything like the 8'10 graphite homewaters rod, it is not fast like a fast sage but smooth with some power if needed.
