Sage One - New Flagship fly rod range announced EFTTEX award winner (Best new fly rod)
There is a real buzz about this exciting new product here’s what we think.
Sportfish say – “Our test casts have shown this rod to have remarkable levels of feedback, giving the caster an instinctive feel for each casting stroke. Perfect for the seasoned pro and also great for the improver, uncanny lightness and unsurpassed sensitivity are the Sage One’s trademarks.
Sage say – “Being able to feel exactly what the line is doing through all stages of a cast gives users the ultimate control so that they can make the minute corrections needed in-cast to land the fly precisely where they want it”
Sportfish say – “This rod is going to bring out the best in every caster. No doubt it will be the tool of choice for our instructor team.”
Sage say – “The ONE rod offers a more fluid transmission of energy from the arm to the fly. The eye sees the cast it wants to make and it is translated to the hand and through the rod instantaneously.”
Sportfish say – “We knew that recent developments in carbon fibre technology would open the flood gates to improvements in rod design, Sage Konnetic Technology is at the forefront of this revolution”
Sage say - “Konnetic Technology combines proprietary aerospace-grade materials with innovative manufacturing methods and processes. The impossibly lighter rods built utilising this technology provide ultimate line control and accuracy due to enhanced tip-to hand sensitivity and feedback, yet still retain Sage’s renowned power and durability. Using our High Compression Moulding (HCM) process, the blank’s carbon fibres are compacted for optimum density and precise alignment, simultaneously fusing the 50% lighter all-carbon fibre inner core.”
Sage Vice President Marc Bale kindly agreed to tell us a little about the Sage One on a recent visit to our Reading store…
The official UK launch of the Sage One will be held at Sportfish Reading on the 17/18th September – Sage design guru Jerry Siem will be on hand to demonstrate the new rods and answer your questions.
