We've used a lot of rods in the salt. Our adventures cover the gambit from tiny bonefish to behemoth marlins. Sage rods give maximum performance with unequaled reliability. SALT is a quantum leap over any saltwater fly rods ever produced. The blanks are noticeably lighter in weight, yet stronger and more resilient.
Why Sage SALT?
On the flats, blue water, or anywhere in between, your first shot is always the best. SALT is Sage's first saltwater rod created with their revolutionary Konnetic Technology. Its medium fast action loads extremely quickly at all distances, allowing you to make your all-important first cast with precision no matter the range of your quarry without casting fatigue. Powerfully tapered throughout, the stiffer tip section on this exquisite dark sapphire rod works in concert with the deeper bending middle and lower sections to help you quickly and effortlessly lift your line off the water for lighting fast casts that let you make the most of each opportunity.
With the same tip to hand sensitivity that all of Sage's Konnetic Technology rods are known for, the SALT gives you the instant feedback you need for precision casts at moving targets. And the torsional control and tracking qualities of the blank deliver your fly exactly where you're looking. Add in new custom components like the deeply knurled and ergonomically cantered reel lock nuts, a black Stealth bead blasted reel seat numbered by line weight for quick selection, plus its built in hook keeper, and it's easy to see the SALT is built for fast paced action. Let's face it, the saltwater is a place where the strong feed on the weak. Be the former.
