Looking for a lightly used Sage Xi3 8wt.
They are llike 400 brand new now
Ok thanks but where?
Leland had them last I checked
Leland was just discounting them because they are no longer going to carry Sage. Leland got pissed at Sage for selling to Costco so they're dropping the brand all together. The rod still retails for $725 and as you all know Sage shit doesn't go on sale unless they discontinue the model (ex. TCX), but Leland was selling out their stock of Xi3 8wt's for $616.25. Looks like they're all sold out though.
Both 8 wgt Xi3 & Xi2 rods are currently on eBay.
The "$400" rod mentioned above may be the new Sage "Motive" -- here's a good review:
Ok great thanks Slate Run
I spoke with a Leland rep. about them dumping Sage after receiving their e mail. They did a convincing job of saying that they can't compete with the big box stores. My argument was that they were trashing their long standing relationship with Sage to promote their own brands. I have their upgrade program to thank for several Sage and Winston rods that are killer!
Yes I wish I could get in on one of those deals, I'm following an XI3 8wt on Ebay now, the trouble with Ebay these days is people seem to loose sight of the actual value of the item and end up paying way too much. I am not going to Belize until April 2014 so I have lots of time to shop, although in the end I will likely just buy new.
