Sweet God, I don't think there's enough storage to catalogue Heritage Angler's collection, I can't wait for that post...

Resized Image


Top down:
TFO Jim Teeney, 10' 5wt.

Little Lehigh Fly Shop house brand, built on a Versitex blank by the people at Versitex. 8' 4wt. Weapon of choice.

Eagle Claw Featherlight, 7'6" 5/6 glass. Beater rod, lives in the trucklet. $20!

Highland Mills bamboo, 6'9" 3wt.

St. Croix Reign, 9' 6wt. I don't think I like it very much.

Cabela's XST, 9'6" 10wt.

But wait, there's more!
Resized Image


Clockwise from the top:
Abel Big Game #2.

Cabela's XSS #2.

Pflueger 1595 1/2.

Pflueger 1494: American made! Nary a scratch! Auction bought at a price barely more than a new Asian made one costs. I was gonna use this for lots of stuff before I bought it, then I realized it was an American classic and deserved to not be battered into submission, and now it lives in a drawer.

Orvis CFO123 click/pawl.

Redington CD 5/6.

Orvis CFO123 click/pawl.

Cabela's LSR #2. Perfectly servicable, but I don't care. Lives in a drawer.

Afish,

Well, the idea of the TCX & sharkskin line was to be able to throw it a long way giving me a chance to reach more fish. I'll use #12-#20 flies with it. I gets baptism by fire on the D in 3 weeks.

I'll give a report. I got the Z Axis in Sept after reading reviews that it's "super fast". I don't see it. It feels quite soft but still has the backbone to move the line. I lifted a 20 ft cast off the water, took it back once and shot it out to 40+ feet. Performs well but feels soft. I'm very interested in casting those new rods. I played with a TCR once but unless you're casting 60-80 ft, it doesn't feel like it even bends the rod. Probably a good rod for bones or schoolie stripers but too much for trout around here.



Z-Axis is a great rod for in close as well as longer casts, but I agree, it's not real fast. The XP is also great in-close and has more guts in the butt for longer casts. Many Sage guys would agree with this lineup. Sage fast rods, from fastest to less fast (certainly not slow or even mid):

TCR - Wow! I agree, a long range weapon only. Too much for me.

TCX - A tamed down version of the TCR. You can load the rod okay on mid to long casts.

XP - Casts well (very well) long and short. (my favorite)

Z-Axis - Casts well short and mid, not quite the guts for long range casting as the rods above, but an excellent rod for overall fishing.

I'm awaiting your report on your new TCX and the hogs you hook and land on the D. Good luck Sight.

Right now I only have three rods and three reels. I have broken one in the past and given another away.

TfO finesse 7'9" 4 weight with a Redington CD 3/4 reel.

White River 7' 5 weight with a White river UL 3/4 reel.

Guide Series Plateau 9' 7 weight with an Okuma Integrity 5/6 reel.


I use mt TfO the most, my 7 weight the least but I really would like to use my 7 weight more, got the rod on clearance last winter for $42 which was a small fraction of the original price. And the Okuma has a nice drag for the price.

The Plateau was the premium model of the Guide Series fly rods Gander Mtn. put out, it is a four piece and has a great gray finish ,nice wood seat, excellent cork and and a fighting butt and good hardware. I take it out and look at if I haven't fished it in a while, just because I like the way it looks even if it is a lower end rod from Gander Mtn., who are not known for producing fly rods.

My Tfo however is my workhorse and it has some scratches and I've repaired two of the guides myself, which I rewrapped in brown instead of the factory green color, so it has character. I got away with using head cement to repair the guides and I've had no trouble with them in the year that has gone by since repairing them.

ATM yes i do. However i hate the new superfine line. It has the built in loop and it breaks apart. Also the line tends to crack after some heavy use.

I do like cortland line.....think ill be buying some in the near future.
