These shop rats are a strange bunch. If you would like to check out and purchase this and other New Sage rods you can visit A Marblehead Flyfisher.
I just picked up Skagit Master 3 from A Marblehead Fly Fisher. They have a few left but most have been bought already. Stoked to watch this. I will put up a review soon.
There goes the neighborhood. I'll never understand why people would want to go and pay the same price for products and get worse service. I think to some the perception of saving a buck is more important that actually saving a buck. I'll admit I am no expert on hunting but I have been in a few fly fishing and tackle shops in my day. I value the expert advice that I receive by the owners and employees of these small businesses. The manufacturers set their own prices for items. You may find crappy Chinese made no name or Cabelas branded rods at a low price but your Sage rod or Simms waders will const you the same at Cabelas or at your local fly shop.
Big box stores are notorious for paying low wages and not providing benefits to their unskilled labor force. The money also leaves our local economy. I want the money I spend to go into the pockets of my neighbors and friends. Think about how the home depots of the world put the small mom and pop hardware stores out of business. Remember when you could go and find just the screw you needed and if he didn't have it he knew just where to get it. Or better yet he knew off a different screw that would suit your purposes better at a low price..... You get the picture. Ata big box store what they have is what they have. The people tune out and jobs and places we value go away. its a loose loose. I welcome peoples comments.
