In typical fashion, Sage has raised the bar in fly rod and fly reel technology and design. In conjunction with the start of the European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition (EFTTEX) today, Sage has released their new product offerings for the 2014 season to the public. Please don't ask me why the European Market gets first crack at this new product; it's a question I have been asking internally at Sage for years. Nonetheless, here's a sneak peak of new product hitting our store in August of this year.
Sage SALT Fly Rod Series
This new saltwater specific fly rod will replace the ever popular Xi3 family, a hugely popular big game cannon that changed what anglers expected of a saltwater stick. The key change to this new fly rod series is the addition of Konnetic Technology to the rod blank design. Here's a brief explanation from Sage on the new SALT fly rod:
"Using Konnetic Technology®, Sage created the SALT to load quickly as well as maintain high line speeds and accuracy to land the fly exactly where wary saltwater species demand. The SALT’s robust salt-action taper provides the power needed to cast today’s heavier fly lines and deliver all sizes of flies at any range with precision."
