You didn't become an expert caster just to say you did. And you didn't do it overnight, either. You practised, fished hard, and got better because you wanted to catch more fish, more often. You paid your dues, and you met the fish on their own terms, which meant getting the fly out to places they felt the safest: out of the range of merely average casts. Fast action rods have always been a part of your success, and the new METHOD gives you more of what you love most. Like our fastest line speeds to punch through the wind and to carry the biggest, bulkiest, heaviest flies in your box out to where they can strut their stuff.

Konnetic™ technology is an extremely advanced process; Sage married the best aerospace-grade materials they could find with all new manufacturing methods and processes. The most difficult of those processes is the Advanced Modulus Positioning System (AMPS), that precisely aligns the bundles of high modulus carbon fibers along the taper of the blank for ultimate strength and straight tracking during casting. The blank’s dramatically smaller diameter and lighter weight is realized by compacting carbon fibers and proprietary resins using High Compression Molding (HCM) process, simultaneously fusing the 50% lighter all-carbon fiber inner core.
