New Setup
I just upgraded to new gear for the coming season. I was using the reddington crosswater rod and reel. Yesterday I purchased a new Sage Approach along with a Lamson Guru 2 black reel. Do you guys think I made a good decision?

Hi there ebacon, Looks like you bought yourself a pretty good setup. Sage is certainly a name that can be trusted. Make sure that you get a good quality fly line for that is what your whole system should be built around. Good luck.

  • Medium-fast action
  • Black primary thread wraps with silver trim wraps
  • Ceramic stripper guide
  • Hard chrome snake guides and tip-top
  • Reverse half-wells grip on freshwater weights
  • All aluminum reel seat with full-wells grip and fighting butt for saltwater weights
  • Oyster Shell shaft color
  • Silver gray rod tube with divided liner
  • 4 Piece rod

NICE!!! I don't know why Sage lists it as an entry level rod, I think it is awesome.
And I have always loved Lamson.
I agree with Dryrod though, the line is the cake when it comes to fishing. Get a good line.

The Sage Launch of years gone by was listed at one time as an entry level rod.. ??
