    Absolutely. That rod is a cannon. You do know though that they discontinued that line, right?

    You might be able to find one on Ebay though. Check out the Launch by Sage. You might be in love.

    Congrats. That is a good price too. I am sure you will enjoy it. I have no doubt you will see it cut through the wind. A five weight is not really made for windcutting but a seven is. Enjoy!

    As Curtis mentioned, the DS is a capable wind fighter. I have one in an 8-weight that I carry around in the car whenever I’m near the coast.

    To maximize its wind fighting capability, I recommend using a sidearm stroke and casting as close to the surface as possible. The closer to the ground, the less the effect of the wind on the cast.

    You might also consider equipping it with Rio’s WindCutter matching the rod’s size. Because of its unique compound head, as depicted below (click the link), I believe the WindCutter has an edge on the competition.

    I don’t have the faintest idea why Sage cancelled this series. No one I’ve ever met has a bad words to say.
