The Sage PULSE is a powerful rod capable of tossing big flies that might be wind resistant or just heavy. Bass and large trout most often like a big meal! We like the 691-4 A LOT. This rod is a 9' 6 weight rod with a fighting butt.
A good bass or streamer fishing rod should be powerful, but not such a fast action that that "stops and starts" in casting are violent or hard on your elbow. The 691-4 Sage PULSE does a nice job of making accurate casts, without overpowering smaller bass, trout, or panfish.
It will handle sink tips just fine, but we typically pair our "Ready to Fish Setups" with a floating fly line.
