Rio Perception Fly Line

Hi Vince I've been using non stretch lines in spinfishing for the last 15 odd years, they work fine there when you overcome the transition from stretchy mono that we used in the past. At first it was adviced to use softer rods, but that proved bogus, today people are using stiffer rods than before, ...

Rio Perception Fly Line

Hi Vince Could be, if you pair it with a white line ;) The white rod, orange linecombo is very easy to see, you can see what the rod does, and you can see what that does to the line. Of the two colours, the orange stands out best, so it makes most sense to use that color on the smallest of the two i...

Pair of Sage XP's in a coming auction - fair price etc?

Wouldn't worry too much over the spare tip, think sage at least had that option at one time, that you could buy a spare tip for your rod.

The blanks carry the sage logo, but the rod name weight etc. Is in another font, and just one line of text.and a B for blank after the rodnumber.

Cheers

Pair of Sage XP's in a coming auction - fair price etc?

Hi Dave Contrary to Zoran, I don't think they are as sought after as they where right after they got discontinued :) And most of the "they made a mistake, the replacement is crap" comes from feelings not from fact... What I find slightly worrying, but I could be dead wrong here, is the 3 piece notio...

CTS Competition Cast 9'6" 34g

Hi Mike I'm pretty sure Fredrik Hedman uses that one for the 27 gram event. If it's that one, I tried it earlier this year...
