Re: What Reel Should I Ask Ms. Santa to bring me with a Shiny New Sage One Rod?
A cheap reel may work fine...on a cheap rod. The gentleman did not buy a Sage ONE to screw a piece of Chinese junk on its butt. The difference, even when it not about performance (a Hardy LRH has no performance advantage over many >$100 reels) aesthetics are very important and rarely inexpensive. And the fine reel, even after many a beverage bottle is empty and recycled, will continue to be a tackle item to behold.
