  1. Sage 790-4 X: I first cast this rod with a Rio Perception WF7F and found it heavy and balking. For one evening, I couched it as “just not my favorite,” until the Sage guys, emboldened by the magic of an Orlando Scottish pub, declared it their favorite in the series. So, Rich and I cast it again with a Rio Bonefish line and discovered a completely different fly rod. I’ve learned that lesson so many times, it’s way past cliché, but I can’t help reprimand myself for overlooking the potential of a different line pairing. The bonefish line shoots so much better that the whole rod feels lighter, less hesitant and ultimately much more powerful. Perfect loop shape and tremendous line speed developed with every cast, no matter how hard I tried to bastardize it. This is one heck of saltwater, bass, carp, big trout 7-weight. Love it.

  2. I cast this rod with a Rio Perception WF7F and a Rio Bonefish WF7F. I didn’t love the rod with the Perception, but I did love the rod with the Bonefish line. This is a very nice light flats rod, and I would use this rod for that purpose rather than a large trout rod. It casts from zero line out of the tip to the whole line out of tip easily and effortlessly, generating line speed on command. The amount of line speed that I could generate with this rod made think it could fish in the types of conditions you would usually reach for an 8. This is for sure a flats rod and one that I would put up against the best saltwater sticks out there. The Rio Bonefish WF7F on this rod is so so nice.
