All-right, I never intended to sell this. It was going to be my go to trout rod. Priorities require that I thin the herd. All reasonable offers will be considered (read: motivated seller). You also must either be a UO fan or ignore the "Oregon" decal. pm if you have any questions. Also, the epoxy is gin-clear but I can't figure out how to get the macro to work right. Sorry that the pics are a bit blurry. Mike Brand new UO themed Sage Z-Axis 8’6”, 4wt, 4 pc. It was made with the best hardware on the market. Nickel silver reel seat, custom burl wood spacer, and custom cork with green burl inserts that absolutely look great on the green blank. Thumb pad smoothed out on handle to reduce hand fatigue. REC Recoil Titanium single foot guides which are 40%-70% (depending on who you ask) lighter than regular guides and require half the wraps which even further lightens the rod, and they can be bent and will spring back into original position. Fuji SIC tip top to reduce friction and noise of line during casting and fighting fish. Wraps are UO green with some gold trim, small amount of gold flake in first coat of epoxy so the wraps sparkle in the sun-light. Very subtle and you won’t even notice it unless you look closely, very nice custom touch. Additional small green and gold trim wraps at 18” and 20” mark of the butt section to be used as ruler to measure trophy fish. “OREGON” decal placed on the butt section on the opposite side of the Sage logo for a little extra UO karma. I am a UO alum and this was going to be my once in a life-time all-around trout rod. I hate to let it go. I am looking for $475 OBO. Again this is brand new, more than $200 off retail, and comes with sock and aluminum tube.
