    The RPL series of Sage rods. ah yes they were designed perfectly for me. The 6100 was my favorite rod for Puget Sound Silvers. I never owned a 4100 but have always wanted to. If I ever get a shot at one I will probably buy it.

    I've owned a 6100- a fun light Great Lakes Steelhead rod. I still own a 5100- this was a custom Sage for fishing larger rivers and it's a great rod. 5wt is a dream to fish and pairs well with a Mastery GPX WF5F in the textured series.

    Not sure about the 10' rods but for 9' 6wt: I found the bvk to be more too flex than the rpl's deeper loading feel that really responds with good power.
