Sage Bass II Peacock Rods
Anyone read any reviews about these? They Claim they can handle Poons but im not sure. A guy at my local Fly Shop uses one for Tarpon
and he loves it. Thoughts? 7'11? Included fly line?
I've used the Peacock model for snook and redfish in the mangroves. It will handle a 10 lb red or a 14 lb snook without a problem (those are the biggest I've caught so far). I have caught a tarpon round about 30 lbs with it and it was a handful. As far as a poon rod, its like an 8 or 9 wt. If you are looking for a short bush rod, check out the loomis shore stalker ( warm water series, I think I butchered that name), half the price and they cast great. I used a buddy's and I really wish I hadn't blown the coin on the Sage, but I won't admit the to him.
Also I used the Sage line on the rod, as well as a sinking line. Both cast well.
