About the Sage Pulse Fly Rod
Presenting the world class Sage Pulse Fly Rod. This rod has has been designed afresh to focus on creating a rod that combines durability, top class quality and strength to provide you with powerful casts and excellent all round performance. With models available to suit both freshwater and saltwater fishing the Pulse offers everything an angler would need.
The Pulse rod has been built using Sage's unique Graphite IIIe technology to provide power as well as superb durability. The Graphite IIIe technology process involves carefully placing and combining glass and graphite in a precision layering process. This makes the rod much lighter in weight and will improve the overall durability of the rod's the inner core.
The rod's blank power and performance is further increased by Sage's method of using creative modulus positioning that enhances the rod's smooth feel as well as improving the overall performance and reliability along the whole rod.
The freshwater version features a high quality, half wells cork handle and a decorative rosewood insert. These versions are from a 7ft6 #3 up to a 9ft6 #5 rod.
The saltwater version of the Sage Pulse has a high quality, full wells cork handle with a fighting butt. The saltwater rods are available from a 9ft #6 to the largest size which is a 10ft #7.

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.
