Guys -

I was up looking at some of my old rods and noticed I still had a rod that I bought on ebay several years ago and thought I re-sold but did not...It is a Sage 10150-3. Anyone have any experience with this rod?? If so, what lines are you using......thanks in advance as I am going to dust it off and give it loop!!
Tight Lines!

I have one. That is the first spey rod i bought. What a power house!! I use a 10/11 midspey on it and it rocks.. I think in good hands a heavier line would cast a mile.. I do not use short heavy heads but it would definetly throw some serious weight.
IT makes short work of some really large fish. Love the rod, but you have to be strong to use it all weekend!!

Sage 10150-3

In my opinion, the Sage 10150-3 is the best 15' rod that Sage ever built (the old Sage 10151-4 'Brownie' is a close second and would have tied the 10150-3 if it did not morph into a 5-piece rod on such a regular basis).

I like a 36-37 gram (555-570 grain) shooting head of 43' feet on the Sage 10150-3. This rod is still coveted in Scandinavia, and is quickly snatched up on the used market.

sage spey rod

Hey GB!

If you decide to sell please let me know! I might be interested as I am looking for a 15 or 16 footer.

Thanks,

Gary

Very seldom do I use a 10 wt rod, but if you want to 'chuck' Ian Gordon's Intermed/full sink lines these two Sage's are the 'cat's meow.':smokin:

Sorry I did not innitialy awnser your question as to lines - as the 10150-4 is my chinook rod, I use a 750g Skagit with on average 18' of T-14. The 10150-4 rocks with this line set up - I would imagine the 10150-3 will fish a similar line. I have also used a 10/11 Rio Midspey and an 11/12 Triangle taper on this rod (10150-4) the former with tips and the later as a dry line.As Fred said though - this is too much rod for steelhead (even on the Skeena)

Thanks to all!!

Thanks to everyone.....I am going to try a 10/11 grandspey and cut it back about 14-18' w/loop. I also picked up a midspey to try and will give that a go.

One of my favorite Sage brown rods,,,, the 1015-3 was the nicest casting rod at my 1999 three day seminar with Jim Vincent and Simon Gawesworth at Hunter's in NH. Nick Wilder had a pile of demo rods that you could not wrap your arms arround,,,,we had fun trying as many as possible.

I really liked the Sage 1015-3 with a Rio Windcutter 9/10/11 line. I found a 1014-3 used and it is also a great casting 10wt rod.

Regards,
FK
