SAGE IGNITER 490-4 FLY ROD : 4WT 9'0"
Sage Igniter Fly Rods are ultra-fast action rods featuring cutting edge KonneticHD Technology to deliver maximum power, throw the tightest of loops, shred the wind, and reach extreme distances not possible with other fly rods. Igniter fly rods are engineered to excel in the most technical of situations such as strong headwinds, bulky rigs, heavy sink tips, big streamers, or fishing at extreme distance. Igniter rods are not designed for the average angler. These rods are specifically designed for seasoned anglers with proficient casting skills seeking the highest performance, ultra-fast action rod on the market. For those anglers, the Sage Igniter will perform at a level that is simply not possible with any other rod.
The Sage Igniter 490-4 Fly Rod is the perfect choice as a technical all-purpose trout rod when precision and flawless presentation is required. This Igniter 490-4 will throw the tightest of loops with large dry flies, at long distances, and with a perfect presentation. The Igniter 4wt has the power to handle sink tip lines, smaller streamers, and nymph rigs and reach feeding trout that were previously out of range. Tipping the scales at just under 3 ounces, this rod is an ultra-light powerhouse that delivers deadly accuracy in demanding situations.
The new KonneticHD Technology developed by Sage is a significant breakthrough in high performance graphite rods and uses a new proprietary graphite/resin composite developed through exclusive partnerships with scientific companies. Advanced High Density (HD) fiber positioning enhanced laminate characteristics, and optimized manufacturing techniques increase composite modulus while maintaining durability. KonneticHD creates amplified strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios that have never been achieved before. Optimized fiber-to-fiber energy transfer along the length of the blank minimizes both lateral and medial vibrations, delivering accuracy in an easy loading blank, with quick recovery, a crisp tip stop, and enhanced line feel for complete loop control. This is the highest energy transferring material Sage has ever created, opening the door for Sage's R&D team to experiment with construction techniques, taper designs, and action profiles.
