    Default sage z-axis switch 7 wt.

    Does anyone own one these rods? If so what reel/line did you pair it with? Info greatly appreciated.

    I have mine lined up with a 350 gr Rio Skagit line with a loop to loop that i can change from 15' floating head to a sink tip, on a Ross CLA-4. It seems to balance well enough. The custom build sink tip kits are nice to dial in what works best for swinging.
    Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.

    I am waiting on a 11' 6wt, Zaxis. These links on spey lines is a great resource. Thanks Neverborn for those links. What's with the screen name?

    Simon Gawesworth at Rio recommends a 375gr rio skagit, Cook recommends 350gr skagit, I personally like a 450gr airflo compact skagit and 11' t-10 on that rod.

    For scandi apps, I like an airflo scandi compact 390 and a 14' intermediate polyleader.

    For singlehand overhead work I go with the airflo striper taper 8wt when stripping and the SA sharkskin s/s taper in 8wt when beading.

    A 9wt 40+ intermediate with about 5' cut off the front end is good for two handed overhead casting, as is the 9wt outbound.

    If you live anywhere near a flyshop that sells skagit, scandi, or other specialty lines, I strongly suggest that you try out a few lines for yourself, as each caster is different....most places will let you demo their stuff for free if you are planning on making a purchase.

    Could you please tell where it's available for Spey lines? I would like to test it before buying.

    Neverborn,

    I enjoy stories of folks screen names make a cool look into personalities.

    By the way, I liked the links on tuning the switch rod lines...
