    Have any of you fished with a Sage RPL 690?? I have the opportunity to buy a 690-4 blank just looking for some feedback on the quality and action of the blank. I have an old DS2 (my first nice rod) is the action similar?

    I have a RPL 690-4 - it was my first rod given to me by a family friend. I would say it is a little bit slower than the current fast action rods, but very nice tip feel and quite fishable (caught 1 SRC and 2 Rainbows on it today - all in the 16-18" range). I haven't fished the DS, so don't know how it compares.
