Thanks everyone for the great input. My main concern was the warrantee. I would love a custom sage, someday, but for now, I will have to stick with a factory sage (or whatever I decide to get) because I'm not the most balanced walker around the woods.
I have a custom St. Croix 3wt. now that I love, but I didnt pay an arm and a leg for it. Now, I just need to find a good deal on some rods. Now my delima is deciding between an XP and the SLT.
