  1. Sage 597-4: This stunning fly rod is one of my 3 favorites in the series. The tip is so fine that it actually feels like a 9’0” rod. A rod this long and light simply must be bouncy, but it hardly quivers, even when reaching back for a long cast. The feeling transmitted when casting is like brushing butter onto the palm of your hand. Roll casting and line mending capability is superb, but it’s the overhead casting qualities that seem so compelling in this extra long trout model.

    Lines: Rio Gold, Rio Aqualux, SA Trout Taper, SA MPX, SA Sonar Stillwater and sink tip lines. It will be hard to find a line this rod does not like.

  2. I wrote some remarkable explicitives desicribing how awesome this rod is in my notes. First off I can’t believe this rod is six inches longer than the 905. It casts and swings so lightly that you have no idea its a 9 foot 6 inch stick. Every bit as powerful and easy casting as the 905. It carries line in the air with remarkable confidence and ease. Bottom line, I haven’t picked up a 9 foot 6 inch rod that did all the things as well as this rod did (aside from the X 896). I believe that this rod will set the standard for big river trout fishing and it maintains that magic wand feeling that the 5 weight X rods perpetuate. Small dries and 5X to mega streamers on tippet measured in pounds, this is a rod that can cover that range without compromise. Get one. I plan on putting this one in my personal rod collection and I own the X 590. This rod comes with an aluminum uplocking reel seat and a fighting butt. I believe that this rod could be the all time best rod for the Gunnison, Colorado, and the San Juan.
