Sage Xi3 Series Saltwater Fly Rods - $444.88

Nowhere is line control, accuracy and line-lifting power more important than in saltwater. Sage has met that challenge head-on with its Xi3 fly rods. The rods have a proprietary blank/taper design utilizing SaltH2O technology. In English, that means fast, saltwater actions, specific salt-resistant components and unmatched power and fish-fighting capabilities. The rods specialize in pinpoint casts at any distance, lifting long lines utilizing exceptional torque and changing direction in a blink of an eye, even while driving long, accurate casts into a brisk salt breeze. To do all this requires torsional resistance and the ability of the rod to rebound instantaneously. That is the Xi3s forte. Using Sages G5 construction, material is placed strategically in the butt section for more power and more sensitivity in the tip. The Modulus Positioning System varies the modulus rating along every inch of the rod, which means maximum performance and reduced weight. Sage finished the job by using Fuji hard chrome-plate stripping guides with Alconite ceramic inserts for durability and wear resistance. Guides are oversized for ease of line movement. Salt-safe black anodized reel seats and knurled lock rings secure reels. Full wells handles and EVA-capped fighting butts. Blanks are a striking Pacific blue with cobalt primary wraps highlighted with electric-blue accents. Its beauty and the beef. Powder-coated aluminum tube with cloth bag. Sage unconditional lifetime warranty. Images depict the style of the rod handle and may not fully represent the actual length. Weight (oz.): 4. Type: Saltwater Fly Rods. Pieces: 4.
