  1. With a Rio Gold WF5, this is one of my favorite Sage fly rods. I’m not kidding. It flexes evenly, like the most refined Scott or Winston, but with a medium-fast action. Acceleration is so natural; timing, power application and the rod’s response are textbook. Once again, this is a high end fly rod. I cast it over and over from fly-in-hand to 40 feet, almost forgetting to test it longer. It could be a terrific 8 ½’ 5-weight without the ability to reach beyond 50 feet, but with a terrific butt section kick, this rod turns over a beautiful loop at 60-70 feet with almost no accommodation from the caster.

  2. The Sonic 586-4 is a very versatile feeling fly rod. My first rod was an 8’6” 5 weight and this rod is a top choice for someone just getting into the sport that wants one rod to do it all. It feels nimble, casts solidly and is very predictable with a Rio Gold. It isn’t quite as long as the 590, but has a lighter rod feel with its shorter length. The 586 and 486 are very similar to one another and both feel just right for their length and line weight.

  3. It is hard to choose between the two 5 wt rods in this lineup as both were fantastic. The 586 is certainly the faster of the two. I tend to prefer a slightly slower rod, but in this case it didn’t matter. Cast with the Rio Gold WF5F, it loaded perfectly. The rod enables the caster to exhibit incredible line control at a wide range of distances. Tight loops roll out effortlessly. I don’t want to be overly effusive in my praise, but this really is a sweet casting rod. At this price point, I think it’d be hard to find better.
