Perfecting Performance
KONNETIC TECHNOLOGY® Greatest Accuracy

Accurately putting a fly where you need it—every time—is the foundation of fly fishing success. Improved accuracy is a result of smoother tracking, increased line speed and line control, all features of our revolutionary Konnetic Technology®. Creating an impossibly light blank with enhanced tip-to-hand sensitivity, Konnetic Technology utilizes our Advanced Modulus Positioning System (AMPS) that places carbon fibers to exacting tolerances for the greatest blank strength and efficient energy transfer throughout the shaft. This highly responsive and robust blank offers significantly enhanced torsional stability and minimal vibration of casts that track effortlessly and accurately.

  • Newly formulated proprietary carbon/resin composite
  • Advanced Modulus Positioning System (AMPS)
  • High Compression Molding (HCM) for increased fiber density
  • Denser wall for faster response and blank recovery
  • Optimized core and axial fiber material positioning
Generation 5 More Responsive

A lighter, more sensitive rod is one that you want to fish with all day—the very goals of Generation 5 technology—and we delivered. Adding a graphite hoop core and axial fibers (while minimizing glass scrim) resulted in a lighter, more responsive and livelier rod blank with a narrower shaft. The lightness and responsiveness of Generation 5 technology lets you feel the line load for optimum casting control, and enables us to continue designing new rod applications that are leaders in their class.

  • Optimized core and axial fiber material positioning
  • Graphite hoop core with minimal glass
  • Sage proprietary materials
  • Modulus Positioning System (MPS)
Graphite IIIe Stronger

By enhancing the performance of Graphite III through increased carbon fiber modulus, Graphite IIIe technology brings ighter weight, toughness and a more connected feel throughout the casting stroke. Longer, more accurate casts became possible with Graphite IIIe, qualities of a true casting tool that will never go out of style. Constructed using glass scrims within layers of graphite, rods made with Graphite IIIe are noted for their particular strength, durability and smoothness.

  • Sage proprietary materials
  • Glass scrim/graphite layered construction
  • Modulus Positioning System (MPS)
The Four Components of Rod Design
A Sage rod is the result of four key stages of design, research and production, each as critical as the next. There can be no compromise anywhere along the way; to us, craftsmanship is consistency.
