Sorry, but whats your point?
There's plenty of tossers around who think a grossly overpriced rod will enhance their entirely imaginary 'status' or impress the fishJust researching the combined cost of a pro quality Husqvarna chainsaw and a Dewalt lithium drill and impact driver set. I can buy all of these for less than the price of one high-end Sage or Helios rod.
Last Sage I had lasted two hours. And I didn't 'misuse' it.
