Sage X Fly Rods will dramatically improve the way you fish through superior loop control. Sage X rods bring a new era of performance that will allow any angler to effortlessly throw tighter loops, longer distances, and with improved accuracy. Sage’s innovative KonneticHD Technology creates faster rod recovery and a crisp stop in the tip section, creating efficient energy transfer and tighter loops with any casting style.
Simply put, the Sage X rods are intuitive and will make any angler a better caster. The HD is a ‘higher density’ of graphite fibers, with much less resin used, resulting in a lighter, stronger rod, with crisp power and unmatched energy transfer. Decreased lateral and medial movement of the rod, without vibrations, or tip bounce creates an efficient conduit directly to your hand. This translates into a forgiving, fast-action rod that any angler can cast like a pro, and is also is the reason this rod is so incredibly accurate. KonneticHD is a breakthrough platform in rod design that will continue to drive innovation with Sage rods well into the future.
The Sage X Rod 4wt 8'6" is the perfect all around dry fly rod for small creeks and streams. The 8'6" allows for a slightly better feel at the rod tip for more accurate presentations with tiny dries at longer distances. This 4wt also nymphs pocket water well and can easily handle smaller streamers and sinking tip lines. The 8'6" length tends to feel lighter in hand than a 9'0" also allowing a quicker cast at shorter distances.
Sage X rods are finished in a gorgeous black spruce color, with dark green thread wraps and metallic grey accent wraps. A premium Vera wood insert adorns the stealth black laser etched reel seat. Premium Fuji ceramic stripper guides with hard-chromed snake guides and tip-top reduce friction to shoot line effortlessly. Each rod includes a Sage divided rod sock and premium Sage X aluminum rod tube to protect your investment. Every Sage X is hand crafted by the same 27 sets of expert hands on Bainbridge Island, WA in the USA.
