Default winston v/s sage

Just for fun lets post which of the two rods we like most. I will keep up with them and 1month from now (or till people quit posting) I will post which rod company is desired the most. It is just for fun and to see which rod has the biggest following.

MY vote.

Winston

I have a Sage, nice but honestly not completely crazy about it. I tried a Winston Biix (think that was the model) and was blown away.

Have a number of Scotts and love them.

Sage Z axis and I am very pleased with it. It far exceeds my abilities, but that isn't saying much. I also have a Winston but it was an older model that was slow and did not do well in the wind.

I'm a huge fan of the older Sage RPL series of rods. The RPL's are what put Sage on the map. Sweet sticks. I've yet to cast another Sage rod that has the same feel of a RPL that also looks as good and with top-shelf components.

Default Sage VPS

Flyred -

Mine's a 3-piece VPS 7'9" 3-weight. Nice rod, and maybe I just haven't used it in right situation yet.

I have never got the opportunity to cast the VPS line of sage. I have some shorter smaller rods such as that rod and I do not tend to like them. So it might be that you just have not got to put it to the right application yet. I have a 8' 4wt orvis troutbum that I am not crazy about. Great rod I just am not happy with it yet. But it will have its time and place.

I have a Winston BIIt (9 foot 4 weight) an am very pleased with it. I can't think of a thing I would change.

I also have 2 Scott G2 rods (a 5 wt and a 3 wt).

Both series are great rods for my casting style or lack thereof.

The Winston is prettier but they all fish good. I have a slight preference for the Winston though.
