Took a chance and bid on a 5100-3 Sage on Ebay and actually got it at (I believe) a reasonable, no gouge price. Very, very nice condition. Went to the local school yard to catch some grass blade fish, strictly catch and release of course. Put on a Ross G1 and a WF5F Cortland and a WF5 Rio midge tip. I may be old and senile and gawd knows what else but this rod is a joy to cast. It's not "work", rather, it's "fun". Not a broom stick or a finicky timed rocket launcher. Nope. And highly accurate to distances I don't care about. Sometimes "old school" is just really, really good school. Enjoy !
