Sage Z-Axis 12'6" 5wt for sale.
I am looking to sell or trade for the right gear my Sage 5wt Z-Axis. I got it new, only lawn cast. It has seen action about 5 times and that is being generous so I don't miss lead anyone. I live in North Colorado and I love the rod but I just don't use it. It has seen action on the Grey Reef and Miracle mile but #1 I feel even that rod is a little big for those rivers and #2 I have a couple other rods that fit the water better so the Axis has been spending most time in the rod tube.
If I lived in Wyoming or Montana I would not even hesitate to fish the rod often. I also think it would be a great rod for light steelhead like on the upper lower Deschutes or It would be a perfect Grand Ronde river rod. It is a great trout stick for larger trout, 18" trout are a blast but it can handle a solid 22+ inch trout no problem.
I cast a Skagit Switch 390 and I like it but other might like lighter/heavier.
I would like to get 400 for it but I am willing to negotiate with an interested buyer for the right deal. Warranty card still in the tube.
If interested I can send pics. Please pm me.
