Here’s what we brought back from the Fly Tackle Dealer Show:
- Talked to Sage about blank sales. They are temporarily suspending blank sales until they get caught up with finished rod production. They indicated that they may be releasing blanks later this season. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
- Got the opportunity to cast the new Sage R8 Core rods and they are incredible in that you can feel the rod load more easily but they still have a fast tip action and they are super accurate. We will be telling you more about them in the coming weeks. Taking one fishing soon and I’ll let you know how it goes!
- We will be adding more rod travel cases. Both premium and affordable cases are on their way. We will be showcasing as soon as they arrive.
- The show itself was modest but well worth the effort to attend. Got the chance to see new products; saw familiar smiling faces and got some hugs. This made the trip worthwhile.
