I think I will take it, friend offered me rod for equivalent of $200 - I think price is nice.
Provided its in good shape the price is very good. The SPL (Sage SP - Light is the vernacular) is a light rod, no doubt. It's not going to throw double rigs very well if you plan on using a small indicator. But if you're going to throw dries, wets and single nymphs with a small amount of putty or something similar, it will be a nice stick to add to your quiver. Don't worry about a 3 wt. having enough power for trout, I've caught some large trout on my 3 wt's. I love 3 wt's and fishing them. I have 5 of 'em
