Let me chime in here . I have built 7 custom Sage rods and when I show them to other anglers they always say" did you make that.?" I use only the best components like REC reel seats and Perfection snake guides with Fuji stripping guides . You can't find these components on factory rods. Pride of ownership and the fact that I wrapped the blank myself makes the rod special to me. If you can tie flies you can wrap your own rod.
