Every so often, a new product comes around that revolutionizes the way we look at certain fly fishing products. The Simms Vibram boots for example have set an industry wide precedent as to how rubber soled wading boots should perform, and the Scientific Angler Sharkskin Fly Line completely changed the way we all look at fly lines. Yet when it comes to fly rods, nothing truly notable has come around in the past few years. Sure we have seen Boron material used by Winston, and Nano Resign used by G-Loomis, St. Croix, and Hardy. But other than making fly rods lighter and supposedly stronger, the performance of fly rods really hasn't changed all that much. That is until the Sage ONE came around.
The ONE rod is the first fly rod to take advantage of Sage’s groundbreaking Konnetic™ technology. The ONE offers exceptional tracking with virtually no lateral or torsional movement, resulting in astonishing casting accuracy that is unparalleled in the marketplace. The inherent strength of Konnetic technology allows ONE rods to have a smaller diameter and are 25% lighter than comparable Sage rods. These attributes combine to provide augmented aerodynamic efficiency. Further innovations are the 70% lighter, low profile ferrules that help direct and carry energy through the rod without sacrificing strength, critical action and feel.
