The All New SAGE ONE - Redefining casting accuracy and fly rod construction

August 3, 2011
Author: Trouts Staff

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.

Sage Announces the Debut of the ONE Fly Rod

June 23, 2011
Author: Tucker Ladd

Sage Fly Rods today made their first public announcement of their intent to launch a new line of fly rods named the ONE.  There has been a ton of speculation across the web in the past 2 weeks that the Z-Axis Fly Rod series was going to be discontinued and that a new more technologically advanced fly rod would be taking it's place.  I am personally releaved to hear that Sage if finally letting the cat out of the bag so to speak, and putting any speculation and rumor milling to rest.  Here is what Sage has to say about this exciting new fly rod.

06.23.2011– (Bainbridge Island, WA) – Sage Manufacturing, fly-fishing industry leader, launches the ONE™ rod series. The ONE rod is the first precision casting instrument 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.

“The ONE rod becomes a true extension of the angler’s arm,” notes Sage Chief Rod Designer, Jerry Siem. “It offers a more fluid transmission of energy from the arm to the fly. The eye sees the cast it wants to make and is translated to the hand through the rod instantaneously.”
