The Sage Mod 7130-4 is the sweetest and easiest spey rod I have fished. The action and feel is perfect. I prefer the slower action for fighting fish. I loose far less fish with a slower action fly rods.The moderate action of the MOD Spey rods will provide easy and deep loading for winter steelheaders casting heavy flies and sink-tips on Skagit-style lines. Summer steelheaders will appreciate the soft presentation capabilities when paired with a Scandinavian or long-belly line. The uniquely sized Spey models feature weights and lengths not available in existing Sage two-handed families.
