VIDEO: Behind the New Sage X Rod for Fly Fishing
Sage continues to push the envelope and develop works of art that stalk fish around the globe, whether salty or fresh. The Sage X Rod is no exception. Check out this video about the X Rod and continue reading about Sage, the design of the new rod, and the Konnetic Technology.
“The story of Sage is one of constant evolution. You take the best that you have and find ways to improve it. Each step in the process of creating a new rod – from research and planning to designing and building – is informed by the rods that came before it.” Jerry Siem – Chief Rod Designer
The X rod’s all-new fast action taper built with our KonneticHD Technology delivers greater blank recovery and a crisper tip stop – creating tighter, more efficient loops throughout all ranges of casting styles. This taper allows you to dig deeper into the rod and access the lower sections, shifting power closer to the angler. Decreased lateral and medial movement and vibrations in the blank result in a more accurate and efficient presentation, resulting in a performance driven, forgiving fast action blank – refining the synergy between angler, rod, line, and fly.
