About the Sage Pulse Switch Rod
The hand crafted Sage Pulse Switch rod offers anglers a superior range of rods, crossing between a single handed and two handed Spey rod. These rods deliver on unmatched performance, featuring Graphite IIIe technology for unprecedented durability and power.
The Graphite IIIe Technology used throughout the Pulse series, gives the rod strength and durability, producing a connected feel throughout the casting stroke, allowing you to achieve longer and more accurate casts. This technology is constructed throughout the blank, made from using glass scrims within layers of graphite and the modulus positioning gives enhanced strength and performance throughout. This construction also helps to reduce the weight of the rod and increases cross sectional durability.
The range of Pulse switch rods feature a fast but forgiving action and will perform beautifully with good timing and casting technique. The rod is fitted throughout with Fuji ceramic stripper guides and hard chromed snake guides.
The handle features a cork fore grip and rear grip, along with a gloss black anodised aluminium, up locking reel seat. Each rod is hand crafted on Bainbridge Island in the USA and has a stunning, Lichen blank colour and olive thread wraps with black trim wraps.
The Sage Pulse Switch has a 4 piece design and is available in two sizes, 11ft4 #7 and 11ft4 #8. Each rod is supplied in a stunning, Sage branded, black nylon rod tube, with a divided liner.

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.
