Sage has been the first name in saltwater fly rods since 1980. There may be other great trout rods, but when it comes to fly rods for fishing the flats there just has never been a substitute for Sage.
In the world of saltwater fly fishing there is a lot of water out there and with that, a lot of fish species. From calm flats to open seas, the opportunities range dramatically. To put your best foot forward in high stakes fishing, you need a tool built for the exacting conditions of every unique fishery. The SALT HD lineup of rods are constructed differently - each with purpose. The fast-moving inhabitants of the salt require anglers to make quick shots and even quicker second shots.
With the introduction of KonneticHD Technology, the SALT HD puts situational tools in hand to increase your odds of success. Allowing you to reach further, quicker, more delicately, and providing you with the power to make your angling dreams, lasting memories.
What is it? Sage’s "Konnetic" technology is a combination of fabrication technique and Sage's proprietary resin and G5 Graphite. Their Method and ONE blanks are significantly stable. That means less "wobble" as the rod moves through the casting stroke. It's more than hype. These new rods track perfectly and recover quickly and completely. The decreased lateral movement and reduced vibration optimizes load and line speed for long, smooth, flawless casts. Then it helps beyond the cast by improving the connection to the line, and ultimately your fly.
