Default Sage Txl-f 1 or 2wt?

Im looking for an ultralight rod and ive come down to this rod.I cant decide whether to go for 1 or 2wt though.Fishing small creeks maybe 10 - 20ft across,low to medium water.I fish dry and dropper rigs mainly.Fly sizes 14 - 18.Trout are from 6" - 12" mainly.
Anyone got both these rods or have experience with them id be interested in your thoughts?

I don't have the 1 wt and 2 wt; I have the 00 wt and the 1 wt.

Either the 1 or the 2 is going to work fine for what you want. Which you get depends partly on what you already have. If you already have, for example, a 3 wt, then I'd suggest you get the 1 wt. If this is your first ultralight, I'd suggest the 2 wt.

On the ultralight forum there's sometimes discussions about the 'sweet spot' for this rod series. The 1 wt seems to get the most votes, followed by the 4 wt (which isn't considered ultralight).

Thanks paul, good point
I have two three weights so i guess a one weight may be the best
