Just finished this gorgeous Sage TXL for a client. Neat and classy fitted. Note the beautiful gold silk wraps and the exotic looking Lemke reel seat that perfectly complements the TXL blank. This is a very small diameter uplocking nickel silver plated aluminum reel seat that is lighter than the Struble on the factory Sage rod. I can easily call this rod a classic since Sage continues to discontinue some of their best trout rod designs made. I haven't seen the TXL-F yet but I fish this "old" TXL in 00 wt. for wild brownies and it can fire cast dries on target like no other. Sold at 495$. Thanks for checking it out!
