High Performance Saltwater Fly Rods
Sage has been the first name in saltwater fly rods since 1980. There may be other great trout rods, but when it comes to fly rods for fishing the flats there just has never been a substitute for Sage.
The SALT rod tips load quickly, and the rods flex easily toward the middle of the rod. But only so far, then the powerful core takes command, driving the line as far and as hard as you can push. It's the reserve power principle that made Sage famous. In a nutshell, the rods perform well and are easy to cast at any distance.
The SALT models feature larger than normal tip tops and guides, specialized reel seats, and every component is anodized and saltwater resistant. All SALT models have a fighting butt, and every feature built into these powerful rods adds up to high performance and should spell more success on the flats.
For the incredibly diverse range of casting demands placed on the saltwater angler, the accuracy, strength and precision of Konnetic Technology® has enabled us to craft a fly rod like no other saltwater rod before it. The SALT is a fast loading, high line-speed salt-action rod that gives you the confidence to know that you’re ready for anything the salt can throw at you. Sight casting smaller flies out to nervous bones finning along the flat in only four inches of water? Quickly and precisely drop the fly where they’ll see it without spooking. Casting to tarpon that appear suddenly in a gusting wind? The SALT’s decidedly robust salt-action taper gives you the power to maximize today's heavier fly lines to deliver flies of all sizes at all ranges with effortless precision.
What is it? Sage’s "Konnetic" technology is a combination of fabrication technique and Sage's proprietary resin and G5 Graphite. Their Method and ONE blanks are significantly stable. That means less "wobble" as the rod moves through the casting stroke. It's more than hype. These new rods track perfectly and recover quickly and completely. The decreased lateral movement and reduced vibration optimizes load and line speed for long, smooth, flawless casts. Then it helps beyond the cast by improving the connection to the line, and ultimately your fly.
