I bought SAGE fly rod(VPS 690-4 #6) in fall special sale. I think it would be used for Steelhead and lake fishing(including ASHINOKO after returning Japan).
But major reason to buy it was the price! Though it usually costed about $500 in Japan and $400 in Boise, it became $250 in sale!
Of course I knew if it was broken after returning Japan, I had to send it to SAGE USA directly by myself. But I thought it was worth to buy now.
To tell the truth, I'd already bought ROSS REEL just a little befere also. Though it costed $275 in Boise, it seemed to be about $400 in Japan.
Anyway, it seemed to be time to go fishing!
