About the Sage X Fly Rod
The superior, fast action Sage X Fly Rods are optimised with KonnecticHD Technology to deliver anglers a phenomenal tool that produces tighter loops, unmatched recovery, control and incredible accuracy with every single cast. Take command of the water and experience the flawless, Sage X series.
The Sage X fly rods have been crafted with a new proprietary graphite/resin composite and by advancing the ratio of graphite-to-resin, this has produced the next stage in high performing graphite rods, the KonnecticHD Technology. The HD is abbreviated for higher density and the fibre composite creates an enhanced strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios as needed within the rod blank.
The much lighter and stronger blank and the fibre-to-fibre energy transfer along the length of the blank reduces both lateral and medial vibrations, delivering incredible accuracy in an easy loading blank. The newly designed taper gives a firm tip-top which allows anglers to dig deeper into the rod, allowing you to feel more of the lower sections of the blank and move the power closer to you for enhanced line feel and complete loop control.
The design of the taper and KonneticHD technology used throughout the Sage X rods, create precise, accurate and efficient presentations and enhances the synergy between angler, rod, line, and fly. Handcrafted on Bainbridge Island in the USA, there are various models to suit all applications of fly fishing.
The #3 to #6 weight models are designed for freshwater and the #5 models to #10 weight models (found on the Spey version), are designed for both freshwater and saltwater environments.The Freshwater models have a stunning Vera wood insert, completed with a stealth black, anodised aluminium, up-locking reel seat. The handle is crafted from Flor grade quality cork and features a snub-nosed, half-wells shape.
The Saltwater models utilise the same stealth black, anodised aluminium, up-locking reel seat with an integrated hidden hook keeper. The handle is designed from a Flor quality cork handle with a full wells shape for exceptional comfort.
Each model features Fuji ceramic stripper guides, a hard chromed snake guide and tip-top along with a laser etched line weight on the slide band. The colour of blank is in a stunning and ultra sleek Black Spruce and is finished off beautifully with dark green thread wraps and metallic grey trim wraps.
The Sage X Fly Rod sets the bar high in fly rod innovation and design and have a 4 piece construction. Each rod is supplied with its own black bag inside an evergreen powder coated aluminium rod tube.

About the Sage Spectrum C Fly Reel
The Sage Spectrum C Fly Reel provides advanced features and incredible rigidity whilst retaining surprisingly weightless construction.
The Spectrum C reel features a lightweight, die-cast frame with machined holes to relieve the body of excess weight and further add to the weightless feel of the reel. The reel is covered in a corrosion-resistant powder coating that is both aesthetically pleasing and enhances the feel of the reel. It protects the surface from scratches while increasing the durability of the reel in saltwater conditions.
This reel comes fully equipped with a Sealed Carbon System, along with Sage's signature One Revolution Drag Knob system with numbered and denting settings giving the reel personal levels of drag, and more importantly, repeatable and consistent levels of drag so you can have confidence in your fishing.
The Spectrum C features a large arbor for increased line pick-up speeds that has a unique concave shape for increased strength and capacity. The reel has a solid machined anodised hub and a large ergonomic handle that can easily be converted from left to right hand wind.

About the RIO InTouch Sinking Lines
The RIO InTouch Sinking Lines are a range of advanced, full sinking lines developed for lake anglers and utilise a powerful front loaded head for easy casting and absolutely perfect control.
Each line is constructed with the InTouch, super low stretch ConnectCore technology that gives these lines astounding sensitivity for detecting the smallest of takes and hook setting capability. Designed with a powerful, front loaded head, this allows the line to achieve incredible distance and easy casting.
The lines in the range are also density compensated to give you the perfect fly control and the four different sink rate options allow anglers to cover various depths. The slow sinking Deep 3 sinks between 3-4 ips and is ideal for fishing between 3 and 7 feet in depth. The medium sinking Deep 5 sinks between 5-6 ips and is best for fishing between 5 and 10 feet in depth.
The fast sinking Deep 6 sinks between 6-7 ips, and is a great line for fishing between 8 and 15 feet in depth and the super fast sinking Deep 7 sinks between 7-8 ips. This one is the best choice when real depth is required and anglers need to fish their flies between 12 and 30 feet in depth.
Each line features welded loops on the front and include a unique “hang marker” to show you when to stop stripping and to fish the “hang”. Each line has a 100ft total length, with 70ft of running line and a 30ft head length.
The RIO InTouch Sinking Lines are available in various weights and sinking densities that you can select from our drop down menu.
