Yes, I was looking at those rods at the Somerset Fly Fishing Show, a Sage representative allowed me to cast the Musky. Does a nice roll cast as a set up for a long overhead cast (enough fighting butt to use it as a switch rod and single handed rod). I wanted to compare that with the Sage Bass II Peacock (single handed) since it was shorter but didn't get a chance. I felt the Bass II Peacock was a very stout rod, a lot shorter for drift boating Musky - liked that aspect. If they made a Peacock with a four inch fighting butt, that would be my ultimate big game rod for switch and single hand. Just like the aspect of a 7'11" rod, shorter rod more torque for those heavy flies.
