Today I´ve seen a blank of an old Sage 10150-4 for not too much money. I´m thinking about it may be a good deal for the money.
What kind of action has that rod? Can I use short shooting heads (Loop Custom or Guideline Powter Taper) on it?
Well, actually I´m ogling with a Loop Yellow Line 14´ or 15´. Has anyone cast both rods and can compare them?

Good all-round 10wt 'traditional' blank.

My first 10wt rod and still in heavy use for salmon fishing here on the Rogue. Softer action by far than a 'euro' blank of the same weight, but a rod you can cast 'all day.'

A 300 grain big boy will rocket off the end of this rod to a 100 plus feet; a 400 grain line .... you'll know it! Many of us use a cut back 10-11-12 WC as our base line for casting tips on this rod. You can also go the tri-tip line and get extra lighter tips. I didn't as most of my tip action will be beyond what comes with the 'package deal.'

Cast them both and would opt for the Yellow. The Sage 10150 is sort of a foot longer 9140.
Good luck,

I would agree with Leroy on this. The yellow is a better bet in my book.

I haved fished with the Sage rod for 8 years now.
And i think it is one of the best rod ever made..
It casts well and is lovely to playing fish on it..
