RE:A question for Captain Ray
I called Sage today and talked to Jerry Siem. He said that the reel was made in Boise, ID. By applying the scientific method I narrowed down the manufacturer (My college degree at work here).
So now I eat crow and tell you that I bought the 3400D (even though it says Sage on the reel).
Thanks to Ray and Juro for the insight.
Flytalk works...maybe too well.
