    I bought the line for a Sage 9140-4 brownie before I realized that it was as poor of a line/rod combination I could have come up with. I'm going to explore Skagit-Style Casting and part ways with the line rather than pony up for a rod that'll better handle a long line. The line was modified for use with tips by Dr. Way Yin, the designer of the line and fellow Bellingham resident. It has been used once on the Skagit and 2-3 times on lakes for practice. They retail for $75. Asking price is $60. If anyone has an interest in the line, let me know and I will verify that I didn't nick it with a stream cleat, etc...

    Why was/ist it a bad combo?

    Just out of curiousity, why is the Sage and the line ia bad combo?

    From someone who eventually wants to get in to spey fishing,

    The rod has a softer action than most would prefer for casting extended belly lines. It's not too bad with a dry line, but it could be a lot better with tips.
