"Opportunities to catch saltwater species range dramatically from spooky bonefish on the flats to heart-pounding GT runs, so we created a rod that performs in all scenarios, said Jerry Siem, Sage chief rod designer. "With that in mind, each rod in this family was designed specifically for a purpose - allowing for quick shots and even quicker second shots yet having the pulling power and ability to perform delicate presentations when needed.
These Made in the USA rods, feature KonneticHD Technology for ultralight, strong, and slim blanks to help reduce fatigue and slice through the wind.
