I've got a Sage One 4116 and a Loomis Short Spey 51111. The Sage is stiffer and faster for sure as Mr. Hollywood stated. I like both rods, however, I agree the Loomis has more feel and feels more like a full size spey rod vs. the One casts more off the tip and is more timing dependent. For touch and go casts I prefer the One over the Loomis, but both cast good with both Skagit and Scandi style casts.

I have been fishing Sage rods for 27 years and they are great rods to get stuff done in tough conditions, but they do lack a little in the feel department. That being said though, I will never part with my 4116 One rod. The Loomis 51111 is a very enjoyable rod to fish and has plenty of power to make long casts.
