SAGE SALT HD 1686-4 FLY ROD : 16WT 8'6"
Winner of the ICAST Best of Show, Sage Salt HD Fly Rods have increased power, improved accuracy, and are lighter for all day use. Sage Salt HD rods have an amazing ability to slice through the wind, throw laser tight loops, and deliver flies precisely where intended. Casting feels almost effortless thanks to new cutting edge KonneticHD Technology. These new technologies produce a rod blank that is ultra light, with a thinner diameter, enhancing feel and responsiveness, yet is significantly stronger.
Sage Salt HD rods are intuitive, with highly efficient energy transfer, while eliminating vibration and tip bounce. These rods load with one back cast at close range for quick shots to cruising fish, and throw bullet loops long distances in windy conditions. Sage Salt HD rods help any angler become a better saltwater caster, making them better anglers, and ultimately leading to more hook-ups and fish landed.
The Sage Salt HD 16wt 8'6" fly rod is the heavy duty bluewater rod specifically designed for deep water tarpon, sailfish, marlin, mahi-mahi, tuna, and big sharks. This 13wt is a cannon for throwing huge saltwater flies to the ocean's biggest predators. The 16wt is an incredibly powerful, fast action rod that shreds the wind with huge flies, and will win even the longest, toughest battles.
Sage Salt HD rods are beautifully finished in a squid ink blue color, with black thread wraps and complimentary blue trim wraps. Oversized hard chromed snake guides and tip-top ensure large saltwater knots slide smoothly, and the heavy-duty black anodized aluminum reel seat is dual uplocking to ensure your reel stays locked in tight. These rods are finished with a premium full-wells cork handle and a laser etched line weight on the slide band, and safely protected in a Sage rod sock and premium Sage aluminum rod tube. Every Sage Salt HD is hand crafted by the same 27 sets of expert hands on Bainbridge Island, WA in the USA.
