    no, no I'm resisting.

    actually the wee Sage is a braw enough rod, flexes through the cork.

    I phoned up about the rod but resisted temptation.

    I'll duck out on B&W for the time being until I can afford a Parabolic.

    The Sage looks a better rod than any B&W I've handled - it's full flexing and looks tough - just what you need really - a bit like......................

    Compy I was in Johnny Norris today having a good look at that rod, seemed bloody nice to me. Surprised it hasn't been snapped up yet!

    aye - a think am no man enough for it.

    ma wee Sage will probably kick its ass up and down the street.

    where I'll be fishing is more weighted to delicacy than brute strength.

    btw the bargain I thought I'd got originally turned out to be the old Walker model - 1990s like a poker. am done wi B&W the noo.

    I know I saw the deal on the Bruce and Walker website. Never dreamt it was that rod you were talking about from the start of the thread lol. I bet your face was a picture when you opened the box lol.

    Yep, I thought he was talking about something else too.

    There is a 15ft 7-10 Powerlite at 'Rodbox' in Hampshire if you change your mind and are after a B&Wwith a bit more of a through action

    Although it's probably more like an 8-10 TBH. I think they give the lower rating for overhead casts - with a full line!

    Somebody needs to buy that 14ft 9-10, otherwise I'll have to get it to complete the set

    you have to laugh don't you?

    my face would have been a picture - you get the sudden realisation that, not for the first time either, you've made a hideous error.

    the sage seems to be what I thought the Powerlite might be:

    strange are the twists of fate - I'm the proud owner of a 15 foot 10# Powerlite de lux - as braw a rod as er I saw.

    I got a refund (less the wee postage - thanks guys I owe you one), for the earlier clothes prop.
