Hello all. This is my first post on this board and just wanted to say hello and how much I look forward to learning from all of your experience and maybe I can contribute in some way. I've been steelheading the rivers of Oregon since I was a little kid and have recently gotten bit by the spey bug. I purchased a Sage 9140-4 lll-E and was wondering what you all thought of this rod? The reason I ask is because I was casting 15' sinktips on the North Umpqua this past week and it seemed like I really had to labor to get it out there. Given that my spey experience is limited it could be just my lack of talent but I know what a rod should feel like. All my single handed rods are Loomis GLX and they feel so much faster and powerful. Is it just me or is the sage I purchased just better for floaters?
