Getting hard to come by now. 8 foot 2 inches long , 3 pieces for a 2wt line. This rod was a special build up from a blank using all original Sage components. The only difference to the'standard' 2wt is that it has the reel seat used on the 3wts and up instead of the cork sliding ring seat and is tipped with silver thread instead of gold.
These reel seats are sometimes prefered to the cork ones. Built i believe as a presentation rod, the rod is inscribed with the recipients name and what looks like the old Sportfish logo. Also engraved on the alloy end cap with the name. Rod is in outstanding condition, only the expected darkening of the cork and some tarnishing to the reel seat fittings. Sock is perfect, tube has a few storage marks and scratches.
A wonderfully smooth and powerful fly rod with a very thin diameter blank. The barrio 2wt small stream is a good match to the rod.
Sad to see it go but my fishing chances are getting limited.
