thanks daniel but do you have to overload these rods with a one size larger than rated line and were you using WF or DT lines?

FlyRed,
The RIO Gold is a WF line. We were using 5wt on a 5wt. The line loads faster rods well but isn't as heavy as a RIO Grand or SA GPX. I don't think you need to go up a line size with the ONE.

The "One" I cast had a Rio Gold 7 on a 7rod unless they are a half size too?
The BIIIx 7 had a GPX mastery on it, which I think is a .5 size bigger.
That would certainly explain the "softer" feel I mentioned on the Winston.

Not that it matters much....I still had to drive the Honda from the Ferrari store. They WERE nice though!

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.
I am using a Sage Performance taper WF6 on it now. It seems to do fine, however with that said, yesterday the wind was howling and I was throwing a pretty **** big popper. It did not amaze me like it did last weekend, but I do not think anything would have been great with the wind we had.

Last weekend, it was windless and throwing the same fly/line it was effortless to cast. Let you know more after this coming weekend.

Default waterwolf

went to a local fly shop close to home today and cast the ONE in a 9' 6weight. Very Very sweet rod. I can say I believe it has surpassed the zaxis. I might have to find ONE in my future. Thanks for getting the bug started for me to buy another new rod.

I don't own a "One" yet but I have cast several of them. I think we have sold a couple so far. I was impressed, especially with the 6 wt and a Rio Smallmouth Line on it casting on grass. Personally I was impressed with accuracy but I didn't have any other brands out there that day to compare to. I am meeting with the Sage sales rep again tomorrow so I'll probably make some comparisons if time allows. I fished all day today with a avid 26 year old guide. He wore me out on the lake. I hope my arm is up to the challenge tomorrow.

The Sage "One" is certainly a nice rod. Anyone inteested in a 9 foot 4 weight would also be wise to consider the Hardy Zenith. The 9 foot 4 weight with a Scientific Anglers GPX line is a dream in MHO. I also used one for a day with a Rio Gold while very nice (I promptly purchased one after using it) I think the GPX loads the rod a little nicer.
