Sage's marketing speaks in code... I would like to cast the Accel 9' 3wt and 9' 4wt. I feel like when it comes to dorky rod series names, Thomas & Thomas does it better.
I had a chance to lawn-test a One and a Method yesterday for the first time; both nine foot fives. The speed seemed about the same: fast, and the Method was a little smoother.

Does anyone remember what sage described the speed of the z axis as? Med fast?

Casted one yesterday (spey) and it felt like I was throwing a piece of linguini with a fly at the end given the way it bent. Pretty fun with a skagit head... Wonder if this will feel similar.
