Default Reel Type & Size for Sage BASS Rods

I know there has been a lot of debate about the true weight of the Sage BASS series of rods. I'm not here to debate that, but I am wondering what type and size of reels folks are using with those rods and the proprietary lines that come with them?

Hi there,

New to the board and a novice fly fisherman.

I picked up a Ross Cimarron 4 on closeout from Cabelas. It balances nicely on the Bass Rod (I have the 330 grain rod). I also use the same reel on a 9 foot Scott A2 8 weight.

It's a bummer that they discontinued the Cimarron series. They are nice reels for the price.

What ever trips your trigger. I'd go at least a large arbor. Look at the new Galvin Large Spoke larger arbor. That'd be a kick ass combo.
(What model did you get?)

Haven't pulled the trigger yet on the rod. Just heavily considering it and wanted some ideas on reels should I decide to pull the trigger. I don't have a reel large enough if I get the rod. I will check out the Galvan. Haven't seen that one yet.
