Sage X Fly Rod - 4-Piece description:
To the untrained eye there is little difference between a size 12 Adams and size 18 cripple dun--and yet, one pattern will lure the most selective wild trout into carefully slurping it from the surface film, while the other is typically reserved for hatchery-bred planters that are just as likely to strike a bobber drifting through their feeding lane. The same logic applies to anglers and fly rods. Like mass-produced flies and bobber flingers, fast action fly rods are about a dime a dozen these days. With more and more companies producing rods that place the power of the rod towards the tip of the blank, Sage's response to the industry is a true fast-action rod that allows the caster to access the mid and butt sections of the blank, putting more power towards the handle for a deeper-loading feel than could be found on any of Sage's previous flagship rods. While Sage has always been at the forefront of the fast-action revolution--as was evident with the now-iconic One and Z-Axis--it has never been willing to sacrifice quality, detail, or production practices in its pursuit to create a lighter, faster, and more responsive fly rod. When the One replaced the cannon-like Z-Axis in 2012, its impressively lightweight design and blisteringly fast action made it the go-to choice for anglers looking for a rod that was light in the hand but still packed a punch when casting into a headwind during a green drake hatch or presenting foam-bodied hoppers on a blustery summer day. Part of what made the feel of the One so versatile and fast was its powerful tip--a feel the X Fly Rod improves on by efficiently dispersing energy through the blank with its KonneticHD technology. KonneticHD is similar to the original Konnetic technology, but its refined graphite-to-resin ratio better amplifies the strength-to-weight ratio of the blank and increases the overall stiffness of the rod while reducing lateral and medial wobbling as the rod is loaded. If you're the type of person that isn't con.
