About the Sage Accel Fly Rod
The Sage Accel Fly Rod is built from ultra innovative Generation 5 technology to produce an incredibly responsive and high performing rod. The Sage Accel is available in two different versions that will suit both freshwater and saltwater fishing.
This medium to fast action, 4 piece rod is created from Sage's unique Generation 5 technology. This process involves using a mixture of Sage's own carbon/resin compound with a graphite hoop and then combining all the materials with minimal glass scrims. This makes the rod's body and core ultra light weight and improves the rod's responsiveness.
The graphite fibres are carefully positioned during this process to improve the rod's overall strength and performance. This process gives extra durability that is placed throughout the entire rod and the final construction results in a narrower shaft with a dynamic rod blank.
The Generation 5 technology has been developed from a collection of essential and powerful properties from Sage's Konnetic Technology and then improved upon. This has led to Sage being able to fabricate a rod with smoother tracking, increased line speed and line control.
The Sage Accel Fly Rod is an exceptional rod that is olive green in colour with Fuji ceramic stripper guides and hard chromed snake guides. The freshwater and saltwater versions both include a durable stealth black anodized aluminium up-locking reel seat.
The freshwater version includes a high quality rosewood insert with a snub nose, half-wells cork handle. This version of the Accel rod ranges from sizes 7ft6 #3 to a 9ft6 #5.
The saltwater version has a high quality, full wells cork handle with a fighting butt. The saltwater version ranges from 9ft #6 to a 10ft #8.
This fly rod is supplied with a deluxe, high quality cordura tube that is leaf green in colour. Inside the rod tube is a divided liner to separate the 4 sections of your rod and an additional black cloth back incorporating emerald green coloured logos.
Each tube features an adjustable strap with a zipped top opening with an emerald green coloured embroidered Sage logo on the side. Inside the tube is your warranty registration card to register your rod for the Sage Lifetime Warranty.
The Sage Accel Fly Rod is a beautifully designed rod that will feel like an absolute dream in your hands when you're casting.

About the Sage 2200 Series Fly Reel
The Sage 2200 Series Fly Reel is a hard fighting, large arbor reel with a spectacular aesthetic design and uses state-of-the-art manufacturing for maximum strength. The 2200 Series reels feature the 2250 and the 2280 models, both are designed primarily for Trout fly fishing.
These superior fly reels are hard-fighting, constructed from a machined, aluminium die cast frame and a large arbor design for increased retrieve rate. The large arbor also reduces line coiling and makes casting much easier with fewer tangles. The generous concave spool surface shape further enhances the strength and capacity of each reel.
The 2200 series use a high-grade carbon disc drag for ultra smooth, stable and consistent performance. The drag is controlled by a fully machined, one revolution drag knob that includes a numerical and dented setting to adjust as you wish. You can easily and quickly choose your drag setting depending upon your fishing scenario.
You can also easily change and remove the spool using the unique, reliable and simple yet O-Ring system. To remove the spool, place your index fingers on the inside of the rear spool and your thumbs close to the centre, through the reel frame. Press firmly and evenly with your thumbs to release the spool from the O-Ring.
To reinstall the spool, you simply slide the spool down over the frame hub and apply a small amount of drag. Slide the spool onto the housing until it comes to rest on the O-Ring and press down until you feel the spool slide over the O-Ring and click into position. Remove the drag pressure and turn the spool a couple of times to ensure that it is properly seated.
Each reel is fitted with a machined aluminium handle with an ergonomic design for comfort and ease of use. You can also easily convert your choice of reel from left to right hand wind if you like.
The Sage 2200 Series Fly Reel is supplied with a neoprene and embroidered, ballistic nylon reel case and is available either Black/Blaze or a Black/Platinum colour.
