Re: Need help with setting up new sage
never had a trout "on the reel".
Just my opinion but drags are for saltwater. Caught a 3 pound smallie on a 4 wt rod and he never got on the reel. I personally think the fly rod is way way mor important than the reel.
Now if you want it light and to look cool, then sadly you will pay! other than that, all it does in hold line.
