RE:Sage 6 wt?

I have all weight rods from a 2 weight to a 15 weight. I always used a Sage 9 foot 5 weight until Orvis came out with the two weight in the 1980's. It is 8 foot long, and is a dream, if it is not windy. I have taken trout to about 5 lbs on it using very light tippets, and nylon thread for a leader. My theory is that when the fish hit, the inital shock breaks the tippet, and because of the light action rod it absorbs the shock. I fish it using flies from size 14 to size 28. Just my 2c.

RE:Sage 6 wt?

Thanks all for the help. I realize the best thing to do is cast them. I'm targeting the Sage VPS 6wt. 4 pc now. Med fast action is the ticket. So since I can't use them til april I may as well wait for the show in Jan. to cast them. Then look for the deal.
