I recently purchased a "Hardy Featherweight" for my Sage ZXL. I fished it for the last 3 days and love the feel of 10" & 12" rainbows on it. Balances the rod perfectly with a RIO WF3F and about 50 yards of 20# Dacron. I like the old Hardy click sound on the out-feed. I will probably pick up another for my 4 weight. Not a lot of drag but great for the stream fishing that I do.
