I have never fished a 9'6" or 10' rod. I have really got into high stick nymphing the past couple of seasons. Usually throwing tandem weighted stonefly nymphs and Prince nymph tandems .... ... sometimes big hopper dropper rigs... on big rivers... So now I want a new rod .... another new rod Is there a big diff between a used Z-Axis 4110-4 and anew Sage One 4100-4 ? Is there a big diff between a 9'6" and a 10' rod ? I really think have to scratch this itch... Then I will be looking for a fast Sage 8wt ... and then I will be all done, broke and malnourished... Thanks gang !
