    Default Reel advice for my Sage Esn 2wt?

    Just got one of these old model sage esn 2wt 10ft's on closeout on ebay.I had the 3wt but i find the 2wt far superior.
    What reel weight matches this rod (unloaded)?

    any reel that will balance the rod.
    As most of the fishing will be done with the rod slightly above horizontal to 60%, if the rod can balance in that type of position, it will be great.

    I have been using an old Sage 3200 reel on a 2wt ESN for a couple of months. The reel balances the rod well. Troll ebay maybe you can find one there.

    Sage 3200. Its the predecessor of the current Click reels. Hard to find but i've seen a few pop up on ebay from time to time.

    Nope, was discontinued in 2009 or 2010 in favour of the Click series. The ones you are seeing are fake and not Sage branded products...Although some shops might still have old stock these models are not listed on Sages website as current stock.

    Hey man, ja the rod is great and performs better than I expected. Its a little "heavy" for the reigning conditions at the moment but I knew that was going to be the case. Honestly, I havent fished for months I don't like being on the water when its uncomfortably hot. I feel it unfair towards the fish. I'll rather wait for the crisp mornings of march, april and may before I venture out again. I like fishing that time of the year, its a combination of everything I like....
