Captain Frank of Outdoor Community had the chance to take an 8 weight ONE Rod on his latest trip to the Bahamas. Needless to say it surpassed his expectations.
Some fast rods have a feel almost comparable to a broomstick. With the Sage ONE, I could feel the loading of the rod on the backcast, resulting in an improved forward cast. The not wimpy part, it handled multiple fast bonefish runs that got well into the backing, holding them away from the mangroves, yet not breaking the tippet.
