SALT
THE NEW SALT FLY ROD. NEW FOR 2015.
All the way from Bainbridge Island, Washington - Sage brings us two new rods, the first for 2015 is their first ever saltwater rod created with their revolutionary Konnetic Technology. With medium-fast action that some may consider "Salt Action" loads extremely quickly at varying distances that allow you to make precise first casts regardless of range all with ease. Introducing the all new SALT.

We are told the rod is tapered throughout, the stiffer tip section on it's dark sapphire rod works seamlessly with the deeper-bending middle and lower sections all to help you quickly and effortlessly lift your line off the water providing lightning-fast casts.

THE ACCEL FLY ROD. NEW FOR 2015.

Sage Accel

Sage 'Reinvents' G5 Technology

Sage is always testing and pushing the limits of rod technology. One of the great benefits is that it gives them vital insights to rod design using previous technologies. Of course it always helps to use a design that works. Case in point: their latest fast action ACCEL family of single and two-handed rods. Created using their responsive Generation 5 technology, the all-new ACCEL benefits from the added bonus of Konnetic Technology. As Sage puts it: "It’s like going back in time to bet on your favorite sports team with the score in hand—you’ve got a winner and you know it." 
Sage Accel Fly Rod
Generation 5 technology
The already proven and responsive Generation 5 technology has been improved on by using carbon fiber alignment and resin application that help give the ACCEL its impressive loading and recovery qualities. The ACCEL combines power and finesse with elegance. The ACCEL sounds like is a finely crafted fishing tool with innovative features that belie its more value conscious origins. From its bright and alluring Emerald blank to its newly-designed rod seat featuring subtle details like a matt black Stealth finish and laser engraved logo, the ACCEL is a classic representation of the Sage DNA that it embodies. The ACCEL is true casting performance and value without compromise.
