    NEW! SAGE MAVERICK 990-4 FLY ROD : 9WT 9'0"

    The New for 2020, Sage Maverick Rod has been designed from the ground up with Konnetic Technology to be fine-tuned to the demanding needs of saltwater specific applications. The Maverick 9wt, 9'0" is the all around saltwater fly rod for the especially under windier conditions or casting larger/heavier flies. The Maverick is the perfect tool for any angler stepping into the saltwater arena where speed is of the utmost importance.

    The Maverick has a design taper with a powerful tip section that drives the casting load down to more robust lower sections, making it easier to fire these quick efficient casts and helping the angler make the most of their finite opportunities. Saltwater angling is more often a game of quick shots than long casts. Dropping a fly in front of a cruising tarpon 20ft off the bow can be the difference between success and failure during a day on the flats. In fact, most saltwater fisheries put a premium on getting the fly to the target quickly. Redfish meandering about Louisiana marshes, bonefish cruising marl-covered flats, and stripers slashing at bait all require a quick cast into “the zone” for high odds at a hookup. The quicker you can lay the fly down, the better the results.

    I replaced one of my 9wts with this rod and I am pleased. I have not had the chance to fish the rod, but I have casted it quite a bit. I own a Salt HD 8wt and this rod has a similar flex. It is definitely stiffer than my Salt HD, even taking into consideration the rod is a 9wt. The rod feels like it may have a like more of a torsional tendency than my Salt HD, but it is not extremely noticeable. I cast my buddies Foundation 9wt side by side with this rod, and the Foundation was slow and lacked the power of the Maverick. Aesthetically, I like the blank color, however, I would have liked it if Sage had put the rod weight on the reel locking ring like on other Sage rods.
