So, I love fast action rods, but I like a little finesse in them, also. For instance, the original Sage RPL was a hell of a caster, only a little bit tip heavy (IMHO) and catching a fish in it was like phone sex. I was never a fan of Winston (Only bought them for my wife, because she thought they were "pretty"), until I cast a Boron II, then I thought they might be pretty nice, then I cast a Boron III and I thought, hmmm, maybe Jerry Siem leaving was a good thing. A friend from California introduced me to Scott's, and I fell in love with the S3, S4. maybe, just didn't like the ferrule... My fishing with a 5W is mainly dries in Montana, Idaho, nymphs/ rare dries in Washington... But, it's time for a new 9 foot five weight... Only, I don't have a lot of time to run around and test drive rods, and casting in parking lots never really was a help for me. So, I'm asking for a little insight... Sage One, Scott Radian, Winston B III,what sets them apart in your use? Why pick one over the other? Yes, I know these posts are a little ridiculous, but I want to hear from some fans.
