Sage takes great pride in handcrafting rods on Bainbridge Island, USA. Each one is touched by 27 pairs of hands on its path from proprietary graphite strands to the finest performance fly rods on the market. The new FOUNDATION family is no different.
Capitalizing on performance aspects of Graphite IIIe Technology, the FOUNDATION rod family is fast action built for multi-application. From dry fly fishing a hatch at dawn to nymphing through a hot summer afternoon, this rod covers it all. The FOUNDATION delivers signature Sage feel with stellar components such as ceramic stripper guides, hard chrome snake guides and tip-top, black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat, and a snub nose cork handle with fighting butt on saltwater weights.
These rods range from 4 through 8-weight. All models have a lifetime warranty and come with a nylon rod tube or rod and reel case for the outfits.
