I was in your exact situation a year ago. I wanted a stronger rod than the 8150 for fishing tips, but not so strong that it would overpower a typical 10 lb steelhead. Compared to the Sage 8150, I found that the T&T 1509 offerred "a little more muscle" that is appropriate for sink tip work. Compared to the 8150 is it a real power rod. Compared to the other T&T rods, it flexes noticeably more.

I fish the T&T 1509 with a custom 75' belly line for sink tips. This line icauses the 8150 to fold. Both rods throw the Windcutter 8/9/10, but differently. The T&T casts it off the tip, the Sage loads to the cork.
