WINNER: Best Of Show - 2016 International Fly Tackle Dealer Show
INTRODUCING: SAGE X FLY ROD SERIES - 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 Sages' innovative KonneticHD Technology, the X rod's all-new fast action taper 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 and a ton of "feel", resulting in a performance driven, forgiving fast action blank - refining the synergy between angler, rod, line, and fly. Black Spruce blank color with Dark Green thread wraps and Metallic Grey trim wraps. Fuji ceramic stripper guides. Hard chromed snake guides and tip-top. Freshwater 3 - 6 weights feature Vera wood inserts, Stealth Black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seats with Flor grade snub nosed half-wells cork handle. Saltwater 5-10 weights feature Stealth Black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat with integrated hidden hook keeper in reel seat, and Flor quality full-wells cork handle with EVA fighting butt. Line weight is laser etched on the slide band. Black rod bag and Evergreen powder coated aluminum rod tube with Sage medallion included. Handcrafted on Bainbridge Island, USA. Unconditional lifetime warranty.
"By optimizing our graphite-to-resin ratio, we've created a higher density (HD) fiber composite resulting in lighter, stronger blanks to deliver unmatched recovery, energy transfer, and line/loop control."... Sage chief rod designer, Jerry Siem
KONETIC HD TECHNOLOGY
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 Sage has ever created.

|Sage Salt Series Fly Rods
Item # SG098
WINNER: Best in Show AND Best Saltwater Fly Rod - 2014 International Fly Tackle Dealer Show
SAGE SALT SERIES FLY RODS A new generation of fly rod technology that gives anglers exceptional tracking and torsional stability, resulting in casting accuracy that's unparalleled, the new SALT rods are Sage's first saltwater fly rods built using their groundbreaking Konnetic technology. Sage created the SALT to load quickly as well as maintain high line speeds and accuracy to land the fly exactly where wary saltwater species demand. SALT's robust salt-action taper provides the power needed to cast today's heavier fly lines and deliver all sizes of flies at any range with precision. These are fast loading, high line-speed salt-action rods that deliver tremendous line feel at all ranges. They make the load and throw incredibly extinctive, and as smooth and effortless as any fly rod I've ever had in my hand (Bob). Blanks are dark sapphire with black thread wraps and silver trim wraps. The oversized Fuji ceramic stripper guides and hard chromed snake guides and tip top ensure this rod performs. The heavy-duty stealth black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat creates a solid nest for the reel, and the hidden hook keeper in the reel seat keeps things sleek. The super-plus full-wells cork handle offers a positive grip in tough fishing conditions. SALT comes in a black rod bag with electric blue logo and model tag in a matching electric blue powder-coated aluminum rod tube and Sage medallion. Sage Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee.
"Adapting to changing conditions is imperative when saltwater fishing, and Konnetic technology allows deft sensitivity and the ability to track extremely straight. SALT shines in all fishing scenarios." Jerry Siem, Sage chief rod designer

|Sage Accel Series Fly Rods
Item # SG099
WINNER: Best Freshwater Fly Rod - 2014 International Fly Tackle Dealer Show
SAGE ACCEL SERIES FLY RODS - For the ACCEL, Sage reinvented its G5 blank technology that was so well loved in the now classic Z-Axis and the VXP series that the ACCEL rods replaced. "Adding a graphite hoop core and axial fiber material in the new Generation 5 technology allows for a lighter, ultra-responsive, and livelier blank with a narrower shaft," says Jerry Siem, Sage chief rod designer. Medium-fast-action ACCEL rods load effortlessly and are very accurate to the target. I personally like the trout sizes matched with the RIO Gold fly lines; the heavier weights feel great with a variety of fly lines (Bob). ACCEL is offered in single-hand, switch and two-handed fly rods. Blanks are a gorgeous emerald green color with olive green thread wraps with garnet and black trim wraps. Fuji ceramic stripper guides and hard-chromed snake guides and tip top complete the blank. Freshwater rods from 3-6 weights have a rosewood insert with stealth black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat and a snub-nose, half-wells cork handle. Heavier fresh/saltwater models from 6FB-9 weights feature a stealth black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat and feature a snub-nose half-wells cork handle. The switch and two-hand models have a cork grip on both the fore and rear grips. The ACCEL comes in a black rod bag with emerald green logo and model tag inside a leaf green ballistic nylon rod tube with a divided liner. Sage Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee.
"Newly redesigned Generation 5 technology allows for a lighter, ultra-responsive, and livelier blank." Jerry Siem, Sage chief rod designer

|Sage Circa Series Fly Rods
Item # SG121
WINNER: "Best Freshwater Fly Rod" and "Best Of Show" International Fly Tackle Dealers (IFTD) show in Reno, Nevada.
WINNER: "Best New Fly Rod" European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition (EFTTEX)
SAGE CIRCA SERIES FLY RODS If you're a devotee of the casting nuances of the slow action fly rod, a student of its historic ties to our sport, or just like the thrill of moving in close to actively feeding fish, consider the new CIRCA rod a reward for your years of dedication. But be warned: the CIRCA does not mimic the type of slow action that has so far defined the category - overly soft, willowy and flat. Instead, thanks to Konnetic technology's ability to compact and align more carbon fibers into a smaller diameter blank, Sage rod designers were able to design a radically narrow taper throughout the length of the rod, resulting in consistently slow, yet responsive action from butt to tip. The new CIRCA rod is a technologically advanced slow-action fly rod that honors your slower, more deliberate casting style, yet is every bit a Sage.
"My goal for this rod was to apply the performance advantages of modern materials on a very sleek, slender shaft that would load down in the hand for a fishing tempo like glass or bamboo while providing the crucial need for accuracy." Jerry Siem, Sage Chief Fly Rod Designer
Key features of the CIRCA
Low-Profile Ferrules - The inherent strength of Konnetic technology allows us to reduce the weight of our all-graphite ferrule connections by nearly 70%. Improved aerodynamics plus lighter weight contribute to lighter blanks.
Green Tea Color - An elegant and inviting green finish is accented by Olive primary thread wraps with Slate colored trim wraps. Exotic, tightly grained Vera wood insert with black aluminum reel seat and winding check pattern create a perfect combination.
Custom Cork Handle - Snub-nose, half-wells grip. The cork is custom formed to match the exact taper of the CIRCA rod, providing a snug fit that helps communicate casting feedback for utmost accuracy.
Round Tip Eye - This Sage-designed tip-top never pinches or binds the line, allowing the caster to make mends and cast in any direction with full control.
Slim Profile Rod Tube - Only 1 5/8" in Desert Gold color, plus a unique rod bag: like a chameleon, its gold silk-screened colors flash between gold and green in the light.

I like to compare it to the short game in golf, where you need an accurate presentation with a delicate touch. The MOD is optimized for those distances and scenarios."
