    Default Sage rods for yellowfish

    Sage moght be onto something here. I have long said, that I didn't believe that Sage produced an ideal yellowfish nymphing rod. This series might be the one to change my mind. I can assure you that the first one to come into SA, will be in my hands on the Orange, for a "road test

    On a direct conversion the #4 is about R2600.
    Ex Shipping etc.
    Not bad.
    At the recent Junior world champs I noticed a lot of the youngsters were fishing with the SAGE Launch.
    The #4 is available in a 9". Described by Sage as medium fast.
    Maybe they have added another 9 inches and called it 99.

    Hi Andre,

    Is that rod not a little short for you guys? I mean, it's a good 3 inches short of the "magic 10".

    Yes, quite possibly. The first thought that came to mind when I heared about this range, was "why only 9'9"? If it were 10'6", it would have really got my pulse racing.

    The "99" blank according to Sage is $349.50. The completed rod is $699.00.

    Are you guys referring to the "99" - the link seems to suggest it?

    At 699 Dollars, it would make it about R5 600.00 What school did you go to Korrie?

    Still a good price for what seems to be a good rod.
