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.
I once hired a Sage Xi 9' #9 weight saltwater rod - a horrid rod. The top ring broke off 3rd cast. Bloody thing then hit me in the back of the head when the ring and 2” of carbon caught in the treble hook so the line couldn't aerialise.Last Sage I had lasted two hours. And I didn't 'misuse' it.
