Hello, what is the difference in these rods? They look similar except for the reel seat. Thanks, Dean
My first nice trout rod was an RPL 590.....it's 30 years old and still gets regular use, although my BIIX Winston 490 has become the go to choice when the flys are small and the wind is minimalDS series are OK to good rods. RPL is a very good rod, if a tad fast.
You're thinking of the VPS. (Although Sage actually said that while the taper was the same, the materials were updated in the VPS.)Guess I was wrong. Thought I’d been told that after they moved beyond the RPL that Sage continued using the RPL blank for the DS, with cheaper appointments.
