This kind of BS should be taken care of at a personal level, not the internet.

Waterwolf,
Thanks for the gear review. And please ignore the other inappropriate replies. I got to cast the One. Rods have gotten really good over the last several years. It takes one heck of a new rod to make a splash in the current market. Especially at $700+ any company definitely has to step up their game. I'm not a Sage fanatic as I tend to prefer more moderate action rods but the new One was highly impressive. I was surprised that with such a high line speed rod it still casts easy and smooth.

Enjoy the rod!

Daniel

Yet here he was considering a Z-Axis just 4 months ago ...

Please keep this stuff out of the forums. There is just no need for it here. Thanks in advance. Now, back to the rod ....

Tight Lines,

Default Really?!?!?!

Perhaps one should consider compensating for one's maturity level.

Ahhh, the irony......

You should probably look at a Browning reel for your new Z-axis. They run around $15.00 and are made of a real high quality plastic. That way no one will think you are compensating for anything.

Default "One" vs IIIX

At the risk of REALLY over-compensating, and starting the Sage-v-Winston debate: I tried the One back to back with a BIIIx...excepting for a difference in line(RIO/GPX) I found a lot of similarity. I am by no means an expert but I found and prefer the slightly(SLIGHTLY) softer action of the Winston. Really it seems that "softer" is a more appropriate description than "slower" because IMHO BOTH of these beauties are Wicked Fast and smooth as silk.

I'd like a BIIIX in every size......I have a lot to compensate for, or would have after my wife found out I bought 'em for sure HeHe!

Hey Tyrillius,

got an idea for you if your going to call folks those kind of names on this board for buying something they want and can afford. Last I heard we were still free to buy what we want without asking others if they felt it was appropriate....why don't you buck up and challenge old Waterwolf to a 50ft duel with #18 barbless hooks and see who runs or bleeds out first! I mean with a name like Tyrillius (world of warcraft fame) you surely would do that.....PS. I had to google your name to find out what the Sam Hill it meant.

PS....what's your blood type....I'll have some on hand for you.

**** back this duel up to 80 feet, 50 will be too easy. AT least make it a challenge

My bet is Mr. Dungeons and Dragons won't be back. I would say mom's basement has poor connection speeds.

waterwolf, don't let this guy highjack your post with his immaturity. We all know you as a senior member and your accomplishments along with your great reports, so don't even go to his level. With that said I have a question about how you set the rod up. What line and size are you using? I am always interested how different lines cast on different rods and if you have to oversize lines to load rods better. Can you please provide that info? I cant wait to see some pics caught off that rod.

Flyred,
When the sales rep had the rods here we were casting them with RIO Gold fly lines. That line loaded the rod better than the lighter trout lines.
