I have only owned 1 Sage rod. A 690 XP. Broke it twice and had repaired. probably won't buy another Sage. Wish I could sell it. Never owned a Winston either but they sure are pretty.
My favorite graphite rods are G-loomis. You don't read much about them on here, but I won't buy any other graphite sticks anymore. any one else a Fan of Loomis sticks?

The Loomis GLX 8wt was the finest casting 8wt when I was still in the rod purchasing days but I never bought one. I like Loomis rods a lot but have never owned one.

I guess the burning question about this old thread is, which one did you get Flyred?

just picked up a Sage SLT 8' 4wt. Haven't cast it yet but I'm told I will love it. Just got rid of a Scott S3, not a bad rod but wow it was fast.......

GMReeves......I have a Loomis and I do really love it.....got it dirt cheap from Bass Pro

Default G. Loomis

I have an old 9' 5# IMX from about 1986 or so, of which Davy Wotton said, "slow slow rod." I still like it though.

Also a recent 7'6" 4# Xperience, that I love for the park. Like it better than my Sage VPS 3#

Big fan of Loomis.
