Thinking of buying another rod and replacing my z axis 8134 with a Sage One 8126.
Has anybody ever compared or know the differences between the
8126 and the 8136 Sage One rods?
Thanks

I tried them both..tried all the ONE's...2 years ago..?. Worked them a bunch at Sandy Clave! I picked the 8116 and the 5116 and love them! I like the shorter rods!
I also have spent some time with the Method 8 and it is also very impressive!

I have the 8126 sage one. It Is an amazing rod. Incredibly light and easy to use. I guess the longer rod has more control due to its length and also weight. Depends what you will use it for

They're both fast and light. The 8126 takes more grains than the 8136. The 8136 flexes deeper. I like the 8136 better.

I should have elaborated a bit with my initial post.
I use the rod mainly on the River Stamp, Vancouver Island and as a rule I don't need more than about 7 pulls of running line to reach fish.
The rod will only be used for springs as my go to rod for coho is a 6wt Beulah
Spey rod.
Although both rods will reach that distance what I don't want is something that might be short and sturdy as opposed to long and supple.
That's why I was interested in people's comments on the rods.
Once again, thanks.
