I bought this rod when I was working for a company when it looked like I may do some travelling, and I planned to throw it in to my carry-on. It's amazing how much more compact a 6 piece rod is than a 4. I know of people who from time to time were not able to carry-on their 4 piece rods on to planes, so the 6 piece looked like the answer to me. Unfortunately, my time with the company ended before I could fish the rod. I've only cast the rod a couple of times.

I used to have a 5 piece Sage (it "disappeared" during a divorce), and I never was a fan of the odd-numbered piece rod. I prefer having the even number so I can break it down in into even halves when fishing.

On to the rod. It's a very powerful 5 weight, and some might consider it a 6 weight. It's a handsome rod and very nicely built, and has a medium fast action, more towards fast.

I'm a research-aholic, and it took me a long time to track down this specific rod model (I also bought it's big brother in the 8 weight). Redington, before Sage bought it, offered this rod in a 5 piece, but it was a wee bit on the soft side (for me). After Sage bought Redington, Redington changed the rod to a 6 piece and quickened the action and upgraded the hardware. It's a great stick, backed up by super customer service from a Puget Sound company (Redington).

A bargain at $120!
