    Hi Ckalanic,

    I generally use size "a" for a quality job but if i dont care as much (for a cheap blank) i'll use "d". For your sage, id use "a".

    I will use the "a" size for my fly rod builds. I have talk with others that have difficulty in handling "a" line so they use "d". The "d" will add some weight but I doubt that it will affect the casting. I have spoken with rod builders who usually build casting or spiining rods and they usually use the "d" line.
    For your Sage build I would use the "a".
