I still haven't built a rod yet, but how do people like this rod/blank? I don't know anyone that has one. I think I cast one a couple of years ago, but don't really remember how it was. I believe it is a medium fast action. I am considering a 4 wt. 9' for stream fishing or lakes. I'm thinking the "color" doesn't agree with a lot of people. I believe Sage has discontinued this model. Any comments/observations welcome. Thanks pals!
