Mine is a 4 as well. I dunno, I toss articulated streamers with it. Not gracefully, but it gets the job done.

Do not throw away the broken one yet! (No warrenty)
My daughter broke the tip off my Renegade and I was able to fix it. I got one of those rod repair kits and now I have an 8'2" 5/6wt fly rod that I use as my secondary on small creeks.
To remove the old Eye tip, heat it up and pull the rod tip point out. If it does not fit the other end you can purchase another eye that may fit better. Cut a small piece of shrink tube 1/2 inch or so, and place it on the usable end. Heat up the glue stick and spin it around the rod shaft. (remember: do not heat up the rod tip to much because it will become brittle.) while the glue is on the shaft you will need to heat it up just a little (just enough to get it gooy) and slide on the eye and let cool (adjust the alignment so that the tip will line up with the other eylets before it completely cools). Bring the shrink tube up to the eye as far as you can and shrink it using a hair dryer.
I have been using my secondary for about 5 years now, with no problem what so ever.

Sage Vantage, lots of shops online have them on sale for around $160. I casted one and the passport and enjoyed the sage more. Flyshopcloseouts.com has echo carbons on clearance for $80, I have never casted one but if I was on a budget thats what I would buy.
