That said, you're not going to see any "Fly Talk" or "KD" rods -- certainly not cheap knock-offs from Asia or elsewhere -- for one simple reason: I don't believe it's fair for anyone to copy the work and then sell it for cheaper prices. Even if it's a discontinued model like the Sage Z-Axis. No more than I think it would be fair for anyone to copy my books or stories, slap a different name on them, and then sell them on the cheap. In that case, we'd call it plagiarism. In this case, we apparently don't have a real name for it, or a way to enforce standards that would prevent someone from ripping off the thoughts, sweat and efforts of those who put a lot of time and money into developing things for anglers to fish with.
