    Default Sage One 7136-4

    I am selling my Sage One 7136-4. The rod was used one week at the River Moy and is in good, nearly new, condition.

    Rod comes with origin tube and cloth.

    No warrenty card because I filled it out and send it to Sage. By the way, warranty is only for the first owner and the rod must be registered within 30 days after purchase...and you need the invoice from the tackle dealer to prove this.

    New: 750 GBP (895 )

    Now: 450 GBP incl. shipping to your door

    I sell this rod because I bought the One 7136-6

    Pics. are following later in the evening.

    Best wishes

    Dietmar

    Dietmar,

    I hope you don't mind if I comment on this rod.

    These are extraordinary rods, very versatile, progressive with feeling with fast recovery, and the truest tracking I have ever felt.

    I have had a look at its bigger brother the 8136 but I found it to be more of a #9 weight, which disappointed me. The 7136 isn't available in Ireland.

    It seem to me by European standards this 7136 rod is more of an #8 weight. I say this because the recommended Airflo Scandi weight for the 7136 is 31 grams and the recommended skagit Flight weight is 35 grams which I see as #8 weight this side of the pond! (Not sure where I got these weight - probably one of the specialist US retailers such as the Redshedfly shop or perhaps the George Fly Shop).

    I have cast the 15 version and I couldn't believe the sense of control I felt but it was a lot on money.

    But for the fact that I bought a similar 13' plus rod recently I would have this; somebody is going to get a good buy.

    Best of luck with in Dietmar.

    Hi Hibernicus,

    no problem ... and thanks for your review.

    Look at my avatar...this salmon, 12 pound, was caught with this rod.

    Every time I was able to control the fish.

    It's a great rod.

    All the best

    Dietmar

    What does true tracking actually feel like? that's a new one on me

    Its something I can honestly say I have no idea how to feel for, I guess it must be way above my skill set

    I doubt that Springer, para 6 in the link mentions tracking:

    I had an hour with the 9ft 4 weight recently and have to agree with Hibernicus, I found it much more precise to cast with than my own 4s (LOOP and XP) found when overlined it still performed real well which kills my Zaxis,
    with recommended line a haul was necessary but when you did it really flew out, a really good rod, the best I have used by some margin from my admitted limited experience.

    As to true tracking , the add guys love this kind of technical jargon, true for all the rod makers I think.

    Words to avoid when Critiquing fly rods

    something you'd observe than feel as Springer points out.

    I can assure you Compo, I can't feel precise tracking and would really find it interesting to learn about it from someone who can.

    Well, I didn't invent the expression and I can't recall when I first came across it but it was some time ago.
    It wouldn't surprise me if it can first be attributed to the someone like Al Kyte or Bruce Richards, or maybe Mel Krieger, all from the US.
