if you had to choose would you keep your TFO Pandion 6129-4 or buy a Sage 5126-4 @ 1/2 price ???

Re: decisions...
What do you plan on using the rod for?

Re: decisions...
trout, shad, 1/2 pounders, American river steelhead.

Re: decisions...
I am making an assumption that you are referring to the Sage Z-Axis 5126-4. You will find yourself not having enough backbone to throw large wind resistant leeches or heavier stonefly nymph with a Skagit head and heavier tips during the winter Steelhead run. I'd err towards a 6 weight to give yourself the versatility.


Edit: Should also add that you will wish that you would have more rod if you hook up with a 12 to 15 pound American River Steelhead in the fast current (especially if it is still chrome).

Re: decisions...
What MP just said. One rod weight doesn't sound like much, the size of the fish you can handle goes up 'exponentially.'
