Sage X Fly Rods will dramatically improve the way you fish through superior loop control. The technology engineered into Sage X rods brings a new era of high-performance that will allow any angler to effortlessly throw tighter loops, longer distances, with vastly improved accuracy. Sage's KonneticHD Technology creates ultra-fast rod recovery with a crisp stop in the tip section, creating effecient energy transfer and tighter loops with any casting style.
Simply put, the Sage X rods are intuitive and will make anyone a better caster, and as a result, a better angler. The HD in KonneticHS stands for 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 the most efficient conduit directly to your hand. This translates into a forgiving, super smooth, fast-action rod that any angler can cast like a pro. The rod tracks extremely true which translates to amazing accuracy. KonneticHD Technology is a breakthrough platform in rod design that will continue to drive innovation with Sage rods well into the future.
The Sage X Rod 8wt 9'6" is the best model for heavy freshwater like steelhead or salmon to the perfect model for bonefish, permit, or smaller redfish. The longer 9'6" version will give you more power and control on roll casting or mending while on the water. If you are fishing from a boat, the added length also helps with casting larger streamers.
Sage X rods are finished in a gorgeous black spruce color, with dark green thread wraps and metallic grey accent wraps. A premium stealth black, laser etched, fully anodized aluminum reel seat is matched with a Super Plus grade cork full wells handle and fighting butt. 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.

NEW! RIO ELITE PERCEPTION FLY LINE (WF3 - WF8)
The Elite RIO Perception is an easy casting, general purpose fly line that casts nymphs, dry flies, streamers and soft hackles with ease. The short head makes this a particularly good line on smaller rivers and lakes when long distance line control is not necessary. This line is built with RIO's low-stretch ConnectCore Plus, resulting in exceptionally smooth, durable fly lines, with the added benefits of incredible levels of sensitivity when casting and fishing, and providing enhanced detection of takes, faster hook sets, and far greater control when playing a fish. In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, RIO's proprietary coating technology, creating the slickest, most durable fly lines on the market. Lab tests show that lines built with SlickCast have the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.
