I was having the same dilemma, so I went straight down the middle and bought a Sage TXL 7'10" 3 wt a couple of years ago. It has been a really nice rod. I used it over the weekend on Spearfish Creek in South Dakota. It lays out drys nicely. Here is the one pic I took, although I promise I caught a bunch
I have also had very good luck with Sage customer service. I have broken two Sage rods and each time they were very response.
