Sage 596 xp

I was wondering if anyone has any comments they would like to make about this rod? I was thinking of purchasing one in the spring.

No experience with the 5st xp, but plenty with

the 6, 7 and 8wt XP's. Lovely fast action rod; great with WF dry lines and a zoomer with sink tips. This XP is the only single hander I use anymore (well, one exception an older 5wt by another manufacture).
