I just went to a Lefty Kreh casting seminar last weekend and he said that any flyrod over $100 bucks will cast better than the person using using it.

If it matters, i just bought a 4wt, 7'6" SAGE FLi rod and paired with an Abel Super 2 Large Arbor reel i won in a raffle. I've had the oppurtunity to fish the rod for the last 2.5 weeks and i have to say that I absolutely love it!! I've also had the oppurtunity to fish with a fly rod from the Cabela's line (not sure what model but it was a 5 wt) and i have to say that it lacked in comparison. Some other things you need to consider when buying the rod are the length and weight of it. I found when shopping for rods that some manufactures may make rods at lower lengths that perform better their rods of longer lenghts and vice versa. Same goes for line weight. I guess it can be attributed to the components the rods are made from. Anyway, i would have to say that i agree with everyone else, got to a "Mom&Pop" fly shop and test them out. Not only will you have hands on testing and great service, but you will also be supporting small business instead of one of the monolithic shops like Cabela's, Gander, or Bass Pro.
