    Tabornatives had a Scott ARC for about $250? Super rods, I prefer my 9'-6" six wght over my GLX.

    I have a sweet custom built SAGE SLT. It's the med. fast version of the sage xp. the rod is brand new, 10' 8 weight 4 pc. i've been building rods for 15 yrs. and this rod never made it to the water. it's been sitting in the closet for 5 yrs. i don't throw single hand anymore and this rod needs to get wet. i've got 400$ in the build and it needs to go to a happy home. 250.00 plus 10$ for shipping and paypal

    I have never held either one of these rods, what can you tell me about the actions.

    My ARC is a 6 weight, 9'-6". Compared to the same size & weight Streamdance GLX it's a bit less "tippy" and slightly more progressive. Loads a 6 DTF with a #16 dry as nicely as a #4 atlantic heavy hook on a atlantic salmon/steelhead taper airializing 60' and shooting 20'. It's just a nice, predictable action with lots of reserve when called for.
    Can't comment on the SLT.
