Sage Fly Fishing has just released their 10th flagship rod series, the X series of fly rods. Using KonnecticHD Technology, The Sage X series of fast action fly rods are more efficient than their predecessors, meaning you can do more with less effort. The transfer of energy from the rod to the line is among the best we have ever seen. This transfer of energy from Sage's X Series of rods results in tighter loops. Tight loops as you know are more accurate, more powerful and easier to control especially in the wind. The Sage X Series is not a magic wand but the lightweight durable design will certainly allow those who know how to cast do more with less energy. The taper on the Sage X Rod has a nice flex to it that offers the casting performance we desire without sacrificing tippet protection and fishing performance.
As you know we don't blindly follow trends. We believe every product has to earn it's right to be on our shelves and in your collection. The Sage X 490-4 would be your perfect do everything 4 wt.
If you are considering purchasing a fly rod I would certainly recommend letting us design a personalized fly rod shoot out for you. If you are still working on finding that perfect loop we include a free casting lesson with every rod purchase.
