Summary:
I love this rod! I thought that my LL 4 wt was light but after having my wife use the LL and trading rods at mid day, the LL felt like a club. I have had 31/2 # fish on the 1 wt with no signs of running out of backbone. Wouldn't be my first choice of rods to punch into a wind. If you have thought of getting a light weight rod. I don't think you'll find a better one. BTW the 0wt is significantly less powerfull and is, in my opinion, too light for all but tiny windless streams.

Customer Service:
After fishing with Sage rods for 17 years, I haven't ever had to use them.

Reviewed by: Steve ,  50+ days a year , from Cleveland, Ohio

Summary:
This is a truly great piece of equipment. I fell in love with the 181-3 SPLCA on the first cast, and it gets better with each additional cast. I have fished with the Orvis One-Weight for three years; I personally like the Sage better. I like a medium to medium fast action rod, and that is exactly what the rod serves up. Casting on a local pond during a pretty stiff wind was no problem for this little beauty. If you have the money, buy it now. If you don't have the money, find some way to get the money because you won't be disappointed. Highest rating!

Customer Service:
Haven't had to use it yet, but Sage is great.

181-3 SPLCA

Summary:
Despite being a 1 wt. I found this rod to have backbone enough for a 10 mph wind. It is extremely fun to cast and can land the fish quickly if you know what you're doing.

Customer Service:
My only complaint with Sage is the wait on rod repair (about 3-4 weeks). However, when your rod is guaranteed for life who minds waiting a few weeks after you break it.
