Lucia F.wrote a review of Sage TXL-F Fly Rod - 4 Piece on September 1, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this rod in the 4 weight for my boyfriend. He loves it! It's the perfect weight for trout fishing in New England.
I also tried it out a few weekends ago. It casts beautifully. Definitely much lighter and faster action than my Redington Butter Stick.
The length is nice for fishing smaller streams, and enables accurate casting. However, the rod isn't so light that you will have trouble catching a large 16" rainbow--which my boyfriend managed to land this past weekend.
For those who are obsessed with made in the U.S. products, these rods are made here and come with a decent warranty.
Since it's a four piece configuration it packs down easily, which is perfect for travel.
I highly suggest ordering this rod before it sells out. Backcountry.com has a great price on it!
