I've been looking at these rods for a few years when Henrik Mortensen was with Zpey as a designer. He has since left and started his own rod company Salmologic last year. The hardy ultralite balances it well. Really looking forward to using this rod this spring and summer.

Salmologic Skyborn 11' 278 gr switch rod.

In north american spey ratings yeah that's about right. Its more like a 7 or 8 wt single hand rod though. It's designed so you can single hand cast this all day long but then use spey cast with it as well. This particular model has handled plenty of Gaspe monsters so it should be great here as well.

Cool rod!!

I ended up ordering a salmologic 10ft 278gr,should be home tomorrow!!.I was in between the 11ft and the 10ft feet.Got the 10ft since most of my fishing is dry fy,I also want to get more into single hand spey casting..This should be a sweet setup!

Dont know, if I am going use the Hardy ultralite or the Abel switch.Classic reel are always a good thrill.

I'm using a six wt 11' z-axis and so far had no trouble but haven't had any over 12 lbs on it yet. Light rods are fun to fish

Well last weekend on my second trip out my new rod broke while casting. I wasn't very pleased to say the least. I decided I wasn't fooling around anymore so I was able to send it back for a complete refund.
  I called Doaks to see what he had and it just so happens he's headed to Houlton to pick up his first shipment of the new Sage X rods a whole month earlier than their supposed to be shipped. He dropped on off to me here in Nackawic on his way home tonight. Can't beat service like that! I haven't casted it yet but as far as craftsmanship and looks its awesome as expected. I have a lot of fishing lined up in the next couple weeks and look forward to be one of the first to put this rod through its paces.

How did the X do this summer? Always liked Doak's myself too. That's where I got my Sage ONE.
