I like the sage fli rods. However, Sage makes several lower priced end rods that are great. The launch is nice and the older DS2 rods are nice and a touch slower. The FLI rods are a pretty good lower end rod for SAGE. What length and weight are you wanting?

I'm look at one for sale on another site that is a 9' 5 wt 4 pc 135 bucks. If you got one I would be wiling to trade ya an older DS for it in 8'6" 5 wt. I bought one and its too slow for me.

I've fished a 480 Fli for a few years and love it. The action is just right for me. Still makes a brookie feel big but can quickly load line and cast long distance if needed.

I've got an FLi and have used one for several years. Fantastic fly rod. Especially for the price. Sage discontinued them several years ago, so they can be found at low prices.

It's a fast action rod and shoots line like a champ. I recommend them 100%.
