Sage TCX Series (Free Domestic Shipping)
If you prefer fast action rods, we know of none finer than these.
These rods are cannons but with a bunch of feel!
Unlike the predecessor TCR series or other super fast action rods on the market, the Sage TCX are a lot easier to cast, imparting a greater degree of sensitivity. These are not only the best streamer and flats distance casting rods, but great fishing rods as well!

Andy fished the 6 wt on the Bighorn in Mt. for two days, Oct 29-30th of 08 and here is his review:
"The six wt TCX will be a quick and easy replacement for my TCR for a couple of important reasons. The TCX flat out casts a mile, without nearly as much effort as the TCR, or any other rod that I have used. As expected, it threw a 200 grain Streamer Express line with an enormous streamer very efficiently. It was easy to pick up the sinking line from great distances and set the hook with authority. When the wind was down, the top 1/3 of the rod seemed to do most of the work for me. Easy strokes with very little force did the trick. When the wind started to howl and the 4" streamers started to act like kites, I was able to push a little more power into the forward stroke, flex the rod down more into the lower middle section, and develop sufficient line speed to cut through the wind. Thinking I was getting great at this, I switched to another rod that had always seemed to work very well while streamer fishing (same line, same fly) and quickly realized the TCX was just a way better rod. Switching out to a GPX WF 6, another fact became apparent. You can feel this rod a hundred times better at 20-30' with a dry fly than the TCR. It's not a ZXL or a soft action dry fly only rod by any stretch of the imagination, but it does a lot more than bang out 70-80' casts! It fishes well and is versatile."
Or as Sage says:
Evolved from our popular TCR Series, TCX rods redefine the extreme distance category, as we continue to push the outer boundaries of fly rod performance.
We created a radical new series of tapers and a fly rod that is lighter, stronger and more powerful than its predecessor. Most importantly, the enhanced line feel and feedback mean intuitively better timing and an extraordinary level of casting ease for ultra-high-performance fly rods.
Whether you've reaching for previously impossible lies, bombing it into a stiff North Easter or showing off in the parking lot, the TCX provides skilled anglers with the ultimate tool for success when facing the most challenging situations.

The TCX is a very accurate "cannon"!! They left just enough feel in the tip to feel the rod load on the back cast and the line combination is perfect. I have a number of Sage rods including the XP and TCR series but the TCX is another major improvement!! I believe it will out > perform my 9 weight TCR..... Thanks for all of your help.
