Default Re: What Reel Should I Ask Ms. Santa to bring me with a Shiny New Sage One Rod?

Hatch 4 Plus Finatic (Clear with Green) 3. Waterworks LS2 II Litespeed 4. Waterworks F2 X SL ULA Force 5. Galvan T5 in bronze. The two I think I have it narrowed down to are the Galvan and the Hatch. I really wanted USA made (just wanting to support USA manufacturing). I decided the Waterworks reels were just a little too industrial for my current tastes. Any suggestions among the last two for matching to the Sage One.
I just bought a Galvan Torque T4 in bronze. I have not used it yet but I love the look of it. The only thing I am slightly dissappointed about is the bronze is almost a red color. I guess you have seen it in the shop so you know this but if not be prepared for the reel to be a little more red than the more bronze pics on the web. It would be a tough choice b/t the two but if I could have afforded it I might have gone with the Hatch Finatic. That is one sweet looking reel.
