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. You can choose your choice of length, weight and handle type from our drop down menu.
