Sage XP!

Watched Randy Swisher casting a trout rod into the mesh at the casting pool this morning. I went over to say hello and he said - check this out... it was the 4wt 8'6" Sage XP and what a rocket! Most 4wt rods don't provide the crisp, wedge-cutting weapon that I get from 7wt and up - but this one is a dream. Of course I was a bit rusty from 10 weeks without serious casting, but was able to really dig the feel and capabilities of this rod.

I also cast the 2-pc 8wt 9'6" XP. It was a whole new experince in power without stiffness. I wished the rod was available when I lived in the pacific northwest to use as a single-hander in the broad steelie rivers. It has a great feel to it for fighting fish too, the other side of the coin. It will make one of the best 8wt striper rods out there as well. I would use it for albies in the size class we hammered on the BoneClave in a heartbeat.

Sage XP - Three thumbs up!
