    Default 10' 5wt fly rod options

    I have been looking for a used 10' 5 weight fly rod (no butt) for float tubing. I have focused on a Sage 5100 but they are not particularly prolific. Maybe my search pattern is too narrow. Any suggestion for like/similar alternatives to the Sage 5100 ? A bit stiffer is fine with me but nothing softer. Any insights or suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks !!

    I should have noted... half wells grip. Yes, it narrows the field but that's all I have fished with over the past couple of decades and I am too old to retrain.

    A used G. Loomis GLX Classic in 10 ft 5 wt, either the 4 pc or an earlier 2 pc.

    Thought I've never cast it, millions of anglers sobbed and cursed when Sage discontinued the Z-Axis. It was built in every configuration and was pert near universally praised as ... well as the One is now.

    Again, 'retro' and I don't even know if the Sage did a 10' 5wt, but the XP was/is an exceptional rod for that purpose.
