Sage Z-Axis vintage
This might possibly be the most "handsome" Sage I've built so far. Note the beautiful appointments on this rod in order to look "old school". "Smoked" components all the way along with the dark amber agate guide and a lustroust chestnut brown silk that looks crazy in the sun. The handle is very comfortable allowing great feel of the rod. My customer wanted something very special and had me choose the components for him. He suffers of an incurable disease but holding up well and has strong will and wants to fish this rod for many seasons to come. I admire people like him. I hope I did him justice. I will see this rod bent this season with my own eyes guiding him on my favorite trout waters. Get well soon buddy! The fish are waiting.
