Thanks Byron,
Didn't know they weren't selling well in the USA(STRANGE). I guess that explains why I haven't seen much discussion about the TXL. *All I can say is "I love it" and all my friends are extremely jealous. * Maybe I can call Sage and be the U.S. spokesperson for this series!!- wishfull thinking....

this is really strange but I did receive a Sage TXL under the tree, except it came in the form of a bench top belt/drum sander. As it turns out the unit was defective and upon returning to the store no alternative was available so I had to request a refund......whaaa laaaaa........a Sage TXL kit for me to build for myself.......although i will probably have to p/u another sander later on, for now.....I will get the Sage rod I've been dreaming of.........

thinking of getting a 2wt CFO to put on it after I get it put together.....unless Byron has another suggestoin...

should have it and finish it by Troutfest.....still trying to decide between the weight, but think I'll go with the 7'10" 2wt. They do have the lighter one available but i'm not sure about going that light.........anyways, I'll definately bring it in May cause I'll want to get in the water with it.........

Buckeye,

7'10, 2wt- Sweet! That blank is only 7/8oz!

You looking at the CFO 1 - 3 1/4oz?

By the time you get all your hardware on the blank it should match up nicely with the CFO...

I'll bring my 3wt TXL and we can compare.

Have you decided on line?
