SAGE IGNITER 697-4-SALT FLY ROD : 6WT 9'6"
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 697-4 Fly Rod is one of the most versatile rod weights and will launch large streamers, drive bulky bass bugs, lift sinking lines, and deliver the tightest loops straight into the wind. The Igniter 697-4 is the perfect choice for fishing from a drift boat, covering large western rivers, throwing big streamers, smallmouth bass in any situation, and stalking wary bonefish on the saltwater flats. This Igniter 697-4 will throw the tightest of loops with any size flies, extremely long distances, even in windy conditions. The added 9'6" length provides additional distance to extend your range to reach feeding trout, smallmouth bass, and bonefish that were previously out of range and is ideal for fishing from a boat or kayak. Tipping the scales at just over 3 ounces, this rod is an ultra-light powerhouse that delivers extreme distance, power, and deadly accuracy in demanding situations. This model has the fighting butt handle for added leverage.
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.
