Sage X Series Fly Rods
Using KonnecticHD Technology®, these fast-action fly rods create tighter loops to ensure better accuracy, efficiency, and line control with every cast.
The new taper delivers greater blank recovery and a crisper tip-top, allowing anglers to dig deeper into the rod and access more of the lower sections of the blank, shifting power closer to the angler. Decreased lateral and medial movement and vibrations in the blank also result in more accurate and efficient presentations refining the synergy between angler, rod, line, and fly.
The X Rod family, handcrafted on Bainbridge Island, includes freshwater models in three through six weights and saltwater models in five through 10 weights. Freshwater models have a vera wood insert with a stealth black, anodized aluminum, up-locking reel seat. The Flor grade cork handle is snub-nosed, half-wells shaped. Saltwater and two-handed models use a stealth black, anodized aluminum, up-locking reel seat on saltwater and switch models with an integrated hidden hook keeper and down-locking on Spey models. The two-handed models have a super plus fore grip and rear grip for comfort in hand. The Flor quality full-wells cork handle in the saltwater models offers comfort while the EVA fighting butt offers support for fighting large fish. The black spruce blank color pairs with dark green thread wraps and metallic grey trim wraps.
The rods have Fuji ceramic stripper guides and a hard chromed snake guide and tip-top. Each rod has a laser etched line weight on the slide band and comes in a black rod bag inside an evergreen powder coated aluminum rod tube.
