A rod for dragons

Pros:Super rod for the most powerful saltwater fish

Cons:None

The popularity of saltwater flyfishing continues to raise eyebrows across the board; more and more people are really getting into this sport, and as they do, more and more of them are finding themselves facing situations and gamefish that demand respect. The RPLXi series from Sage is designed to teach these dragons some manners.

The progeny of Sage's RPL series, the RPLXi rods are rods for flyfishers who have some experience casting large, wind-resistant flies and heavy lines into the wind for gamefish the likes of tarpon, permit, sailfish, giant trevally, yellowfin tuna, sharks, and other bullies. It really isn't a rod for new guys with little time on the water because experience counts when using so fast a rod under demanding conditions, such as throwing a huge popper straight into the wind at trophy roosterfish along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. If you understand your casting stroke and how to adjust it for the conditions, and if you need a fast rod that can handle big flies and lines, and if you intend to use it against fish that require an attitude adjustment, this is the one.

I am especially fond of the RPLXi for its lifting power. I fish fairly often for yellowfin tuna and false albacore, which are species that can really dig a hole below the boat after their initial runs. To get them up as fast as possible (so that they can be safely released), you need a rod that you aren't afraid to put under tremendous vertical pressure. This rod does the trick quite nicely. I'll bend that sucker right to the cork and not worry at all. Go for it.

Bottom line: The RPLXi is a hot rod for the seasoned saltwater flyfisher after the big guys.
