No longer wanted - Found!- Sage Method Switch 11'9"
« on: May 06, 2019, 19:41:42 PM »
I'm on the hunt for a Sage Method Switch 11'9" #8 blank - not the completed rod, just a blank. I'd go for the #7 too.
Sage themselves don't have any left as they were discontinued a year ago and their suggested sources don't have any either :!
I haven't found one anywhere (yet) but it's an itch I'm needing to scratch.

If anyone should know of or come across such a thing, let me know please  :z16

H :cool:

Bet you tried Ben’s didn’t you? 😁👍

It’s a fantastic rod that.

I wouldn’t mind trying the Igniter though. Tried the 15ft-er with a Rio mid-Spey the other day. Cracker!

I did Will, yeah  :wink It's a proper stick that one  :z16

As it happens I also tried an Igniter 13'6" #8wt a month before belonging to Ben, was smitten so now I have one 'in production' at this very moment somewhere in darkest Inverurie  :cool:

Absolutely.
It's the best Salmon rod I've ever picked up, I've thought about saying that....... but I stand by it  :shock

So you finally got the double hander you have been looking for! I'm not looking so stoopid for buying my Vision Tool 11'6" #8 now, am I?  :z4 :z4 :z4
Can't wait to get my Commando head on it and see how far that goes with a double tungsten cone Francis on the end of a T14 tip.
Finally, you get the lighter rod thing and can stop chucking skagits with single handers  :z7 And with the new OPST floating tips for steelhead you can have a proper "Skandit" with a long leader for those low water summer levels, which the Method will excel at.
 You are going to have a load of fun with that rod mate. Imagine that on the Awe after Rainbows :z4 :z16
Congrats,

Euan
