Sage DS2 596

Recommended Posts

I am purchasing a Sage DS2 9'6" 5 weight, has anybody here owned one, this will be my first major rod/reel purchase and would like to hear some opinions. I also need to select a modest priced reel, I was wanting a large arbour, any suggestions? Hope to use it for steelhead this spring.

5wt seems a bit on the light side for steelhead Mr.Trout. The DS2 series is a nice series of rods but I would go with a 7wt as a minimun for steelhead.

I was kinda hopin the length would still give enough control, I am getting a pretty sweet deal on it (private sale). I have a 7 weight but its only 8'6". I tend to like the longer rods for nymphing and such. Thanks for the advice though maybe Ill just wait for another one to come along.
