USED Sage SP 3 piece Fly Rod - 9 feet - 4 weight
Sage SP 490-3 Condition Rating: 3
How we rate used fly rods: (All rods include a tube unless otherwise noted)
5 – Like New. This rod will be nearly identical to a new rod. It may have cork that’s a little discolored but is about as worn as a rod off our display in shop that has been test casted a few times.
4 – Lightly Used. This is a rod that has a handful of days under its belt. It may have a discolored cork and may have some minor imperfections in the blank such as a small number of short, light blemishes.
3 – Excellent. This is a great looking rod. This rod has seen it's fair share of days over the course of a season. The cork could be a bit more worn in and the blank will likely have light blemishes from use in the field. There may be wear and tear on the reel seat and threads. There may be very small cracks in the epoxy, but would often take a magnifying glass to notice.
2 – Very Good. A well loved rod that has seen a few seasons on the water. The cork will be worn in on a rod like this. Small holes from missing filler in the cork are possible. The blank may have minor cosmetic blemishes and very few major blemishes. These rods are still fishable and have tons of life left.
1 – Good. A well-used rod. These rods have seen many seasons on the water. The cork will be very worn in. Expect missing cork filler. The blank will likely have many scratches and some could be quite deep or long. Expect some epoxy damage and/or bent guides. These are rods that are in good working order and aren't the prettiest, but get the job done.
