The Perfect Line for your New APPROACH???
Want to treat yourself to a new line with the purchase of a new rod, and replace that old dry and cracked line but don't know where to begin with such vast options? We have had the pleasure of casting alot of brand new rods with a variety of different lines alongside the employees of Sage. Every family of rods is different with tapers, line speeds, etc. To break it down even more, within each family of rods the variables will be line weights, lengths, and finally... your use for the rod. With so many variables within the rod, and so many wonderful lines out there on the market today how do you choose that "perfect" line?? Well to begin there are two categories in which to break down matching rods with lines. First there is "performance preference", this is line speed and tight loop emphasis. And secondly there is "load preference", this is the amount of rod load as desired by the caster or what is demanded by the situation. So let us help you narrow it down a bit... Performance Preference - for your APPROACH
Load Preference - for your APPROACH

- Rio OUTBOUND
- Rio PERCEPTION
Keep in mind that while these are our guides/staff and Sage's employees personal preferences the most important opinion is YOURS, so stop by our shop and we will rig up a rod with your choice of line to go try out and find what suites you best!
