What do you mean by cheaper? Sage X blanks for a 9 ft 5 wt cost around $450. CTS blanks are around $265. NFC has a good sale on right now -- final cost $60 to $220. Batson Eternity and Revelation highly regarded -- $125-$200. MHX $100 - $225. Pac Bay Arctos around $100. RodGeeks (basically the same blank as St. Croix) about $115. I doubt you would be disappointed with any of them.

The Sage X is a very fast rod, the Foundation less so. In my opinion, the CTS Affinity X compares very favorable to the Sage X at about half the cost. The CTS quality is top notch and they offer lots of choices for weights, lengths, actions and colors. They are my go-to source for clients that want the best!
