Comparing fly rods.
I recently received a new Redington (Red Start)RS2 9082. Being fairly familiar with this rod I decided to trade up to a Redington SSF 9082.My purpose was to get a faster rod for more distance and power casting in the wind. The dealer I spoke with convinced me to get a Sage 89VPS instead. Now that I've become used to the Sage I'm convinced it isn't a whole lot faster than the Red Start. A distance cast for me was about 65' with the Red Start and is about 75' with the Sage. I'm wondering if I should have stuck to my original game plan. Anyone care to comment on the Sage VPS Vs. Redington SSF?
