SAGE X 597-4 FLY ROD : 5WT 9'6"
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.
