Oi...you where meant to keep that quiet!!!!..I was thinking of the 10 foot 7 weight XP for light saltwater work in Bervie and Stoney bays (when i have a ticket that is!)

Another quiet one...have a word with John and Meadow Fishery..he has several different models of Sage blanks on sale, from around 65 to 125. :)
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

And the Harrison..especially the Lohric ones...same technology as Sage and loomis, but built for British fishing styles and conditions, and a very very good price!

I would be intrigued to try a Lohric, I've heard mixed views on how good/indifferent they are.

Anyone got one  :?
Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience ;)

I might have one comming soon...just waiting to hear from the chap...will be a 9 foot 6 inch 6 weight. Give me a couple of weeks to build it and I will bring it to haddo.

Mick from Bloke builds exclusivly on Lohric blanks for his custom range and has not had anything but praise for them...and I find him a pretty honest chap :)

John at Meadow Fisheries also builds on this blank...hence the reason why he has a stock of Sages up for sale..no one wants them after they have tried the Lohric :)

Have to say though, I have only waggled a few, not cast one yet...so can only go on the recommendations of folk that are building them as part of there top of the range custom rods.

I do however use Harrisons for 90% of the rods I build and so far not had a single complaint..which is always nice.
