Are you a fan of the Z-Axis?

If you want another one, you better get one now, because word on the street is that the are being discontinued and being replaced with Sage's new "The One"rod.


With all the new advancements in rod technology these days, there isn't a rod company that is changing up their rods.  Sage seems to love getting people hooked on one rod lineup and then dropping them for something new.  I guess they love hearing from protesting people wanting their old favorites back.  Remember the XP series and now the Z-Axis?  We will see what this new rod is like using newer technology, but I have no doubt that it will be great.  But so was the XP and the Z-Axis.  What are your thoughts?  I know that Sage is the most popular rod company out there and more people fish them than any other.  Are you going to run out and try one out?  Maybe sell the Z-Axis you have now?  Or maybe you really don't care about newer, faster, lighter, or Konnetic technology?

  4. I love my z-axis ,probably own 10 rods and hardly ever touch any of em except the 9' 5wt z. I for one won't be running out to try the latest and greatest thing they've got , at this point I think it's become more about retailing strategy than performance improvement......Jeff

  5. Jeff, I think you are correct. It's all about retail strategy. I love my 9' 6wt and I'm not about to go out and buy a new 6wt. However I don't have a 5wt.............

  6. I agree with the two posts above... It's like Apple's new iPad... Great product, but probably not much different from its predecessors - just a marketing scheme, starting to get annoying.

  7. I heard that next year sage is coming out with a rod that reasons with your boss to get you the next day off, then gets up at 4 am and makes coffee and starts your truck for you- and its only $36,000 with sage finacing with well qaulified buyers-
