Share your thoughts on the Sage Xi2 10wt
 
I am looking for a 10wt for a trip to FL, and I have been told to stay away from the Xi2 in 10wt, as it doesn't load up. I have read reviews however, on other forums, where the reviewer claims it is their favorite rod.

Money is a factor, so I am not going to spring for a new Xi3.

Is there anyone currently using a 10wt Xi2 that is really happy with it? What line are you using with it?

Thanks

I own one, and I am content with it. In the saltwater, I use it for Tarpon, Skip Jack Tuna, and Dorado. In the freshwater, I use it for Striped Bass for when I need to throw the really big flies. Nowadays, I use it more for stripers since I don't do a whole lot of saltwater fishing. I do not have problems loading the rod up.

I use a variety of lines:
Scientific Anglers Tarpon - WF10F
Scientific Anglers Saltwater Clear Tip (discontinued now) - WF11F
Airflo Depthfinder - 400 grain

I moved this to the tackle forum - thought it fit better there.

i dont like the way it casts. Its very stiff. The xi3 is a much better rod is my opinion.
