Default Re: Want a 2wt Need a little help.

In not-quite-current rods, the Sage ZXL 8' 2 wt is very nice. I use that quite a bit. It casts better with a 3 wt line, however. This lining-up is common with Sage rods I've found. My 8' 6" Sage ONE 4 wt is a lot happier with a 5 or 5.5 wt line.

I also have the St. Croix Legend Ultra in a 7' 6" 2 wt. It's a true 2 wt and works fine with a 2 wt line.

Finally, I have a St. Croix Imperial 6' 2 wt. This is the 2 wt I use the most. This rod is a very light 2 wt. It's really more like a 1 wt and casts 1 wt line beautifully.
