found one, thanks -- WTB -- Sage One 5116-4 Switch Rod

Fished this rod in a 6 this last weekend and now have to have one unfortunately!

Looking for a used Sage One 5116-4 11'6" Switch Rod that is collecting dust.

Thanks for any leads.

It's not exactly what you're looking for, but I have a Sage One 6116 that's been cast for all of 15 minutes that I'd turn loose.

PM if interested.

Thanks folks. Going to hold out for a 5116 for now. May consider other options depending how it goes.

Any of these out there? Need to get this and get on the river before the Steelhead quit running.....

Just my input but I own the 4116 and it's definitely more like a true 5 weight than 4. Going to try beach fishing with it this summer for pinks and cohos. Used a switch chucker #4 yesterday on the river and was able to cast 10' t8 no problem. Even tried 10' of t10 but that was awful. Purchased the rod for trout fishing but now I know it's capable of fishing much more. Just my two cents!

Got one.

Thanks everyone. Found a rod and it is on way.

Ian -- your comments confirm my thoughts. Would have gone with 4 weight but already have a 3 weight switch that I love and trying to fill the gap between my 8 weight full on spey and the 3 wt. I had opportunity to fish the 6wt a couple weeks ago and really liked it. I am hoping I have the same reaction to the 5.

Thanks.
