Product Review (submitted on September 25, 2012):
I recently purchased the Ross RX rod in a 6 and 7wt and was blown away by the accuracy, line shooting power and quality build. I am selling ALL of the Sage rods and replacing my 8wt, 9wt with thr Ross RX.
This is one awesome rod.
I fished Telluride Co. with a Ross Essence FS in the summer thinking hmmm this is pretty good. It worked very well for me. Than, heading to the Florida keys, I purchased a couple of heavier Sage rods and a 11wt Essence because of the great price. The Ross out-shined the Sage rods in every way.
I was even handed a Loomis to try and did not like it as much.
Consistently, when it comes to blind feel, casting accuracy and shooting line, the Ross rods simply feel fantastic. The RX comes out on top for me.
