We use the SAGE TCR 9140-4 with a 34 gram shooting head. When you want to use a mid belly line, the SA Short Spey 9/10 works great to. The rod is an extreemly smooth and easy to cast rod. The all rounder in the TCR series. Great heavy steelhead rod and all around salmon rod
I spent some time with the 1510 a couple weekends ago with a carron tournament line. Very nice combo. The rod is a whooping stick and if you are after big fish it is not a bad choice. Really likes using an underhand pull on the forward cast and throws some lazer loops. I had not liked this rod the first time I tried it but I thing is was not lines correctly. You really need to load it up but when you do it works well.
I have been working with the Sage TCR 9140 for a few months now.
Cast very nice and very light to the Feel.
Been mostly casting a Carron Jetstream 9/10 on it working through the casting faults.
The rod seems to load over a good grain Window form about 555 grains to about 700 grains.
The only thing that I would like to see the Grip slimmer for people with smaller hands.
