  1. Sage 690-4 X: Cast with a Rio Perception line, the tip of this rod follows through with the drive of classic nymphing lines. Oddly, the 691-4 X felt more light and crisp, the opposition of our presumptions about trout rods with fighting butts. If you are pure nympher, choose the 690-4. If you fish a variety of nymphs, streamers and dry flies, choose the 691-4.

  2. The X 690 is the 6 weight that comes with a traditional wood reel seat and no fighting butt. In the case of the 6 weights I like this rod, but I prefer the 691 with the fighting butt. The 690 felt more like a nymphing rod to me, and didn’t have the crazy super-hero feeling some of the other X rods had. I feel like the 691 hits the sweet spot for me in the 9 foot 6 weights. This is still a remarkable rod, but I do believe the 691 wins.
