Totally glad you posted this report. I looked at one just the other day and the price tag hit hard. I have a zaxis in a five weight and like you, could not believe Sage could trump it. I need a new 6 wt and I will now take another look at this rod. I am a huge sage fan and would love to know more on this rod when its taken to the water on several more trips. Enjoy.
