NEW - Sage X Single Hand Fly Rod



This rod is a super charged Sage ONE without being too stiff. The new materials that Sage constructed this with is a higher density material that retains more power and responsiveness.



FAST ACTION

The X rod’s all-new fast action taper built with our KonneticHD Technology delivers greater blank recovery and a crisper tip stop - creating tighter, more efficient loops throughout all ranges of casting styles. This taper allows you to dig deeper into the rod and access the lower sections, shifting power closer to the angler. Decreased lateral and medial movement and vibrations in the blank result in a more accurate and efficient presentation, resulting in a performance driven, forgiving fast action blank - refining the
synergy between angler, rod, line, and fly.



Tighter loops. It’s what we all strive for. A tight loop is accurate, efficient, easily controlled, and a way to command the water in front of you. Ushering in a new era of performance fast action fly rods, the X will
dramatically enhance the way you fish through superior loop control. With our innovative KonneticHD Technology came new inspiration and opportunities in rod design.

KONNETIC HD Technology



KonneticHD Technology is the next era in performance graphite rods. Optimizing our graphite-to-resin ratio, we have created a higher density (HD) fiber composite, resulting in lighter, stronger blanks which deliver unmatched recovery, energy transfer, and line/loop control. Building upon proprietary construction techniques developed for Konnetic Technology, KonneticHD gives us an elevated platform to achieve new levels in rod design.

FROM HAND TO FLY – HD GIVES YOU MORE.

· New proprietary graphite/resin composite developed through exclusive partnerships.
· Advanced high density (HD) fiber positioning, enhanced laminate characteristics, and optimized manufacturing techniques increase composite modulus while maintaining durability.
· KonneticHD creates amplified strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios as needed within the rod blank.
· Optimized fiber-to-fiber energy transfer along the length of the blank minimizes both lateral and medial vibrations, delivering accuracy in an easy loading blank with quick recovery, a crisp tip stop, and enhanced line feel for complete loop control.
· The highest energy transferring material we have ever created, opening new doors for our R&D Team to experiment with construction techniques, taper designs, and action profiles.

Rocket Launcher! August 2, 2016
Reviewer: Rick Whisman from Foristell, MO United States  
I bought this rod for high sticking applications and mousing at night for big bad Leroy Brown.  I was impressed with how well this rod, 790, cast my mouse.  Accurate and fast rod that is nicely balanced by my Hatch 7 plus.

Not just a nice paint job June 15, 2016
Reviewer: Joe Rotter from Red's Fly Shop  
Every time a new rods comes out I am like, "oh here we go".. this rod is different.  Its built with new material that is higher density and it flat out performs at a higher level.  We have a great place to come cast, we encourage you to come and try it for yourself.
