Default Re: The 2-Piece Sage RPL, 9 wt, And My Concerns

I appreciate everyone's input. I've been erring on the side of bringing the cash with me when I look at it next week (when I meet with the guy, and practice some casting on it), but I think what has been concerning me is that I've heard carbon fiber rods can get microscopic flaws through use and one day - blamo - the thing snaps in half. Given it's a 20 year old rod (I'd imagine), he may have the best intentions of selling me a well-kept and great rod that just might have an imperfection from use.

I guess that's a risk to take when getting used equipment, rods especially.

What kind of reel do you have seated on your rod, wishiniwerfishin?
