Sage VXP Fly-Rod Standard Kits - $279.99

Widely regarded as one of Sage's all-time classics, the XP was a rocket of a rod known for its scorching line speeds and extreme distance capabilities. Ever since it was retired several years ago, anglers have been anxiously awaiting the next rod to take its spot. The evolution of the XP is here. The VXP improves upon its predecessor in several areas. The slender shaft design reduces overall weight to a bare minimum, while still maintaining a fast action capable of generating ultrahigh line speeds. The smooth-loading feel makes them even more responsive than the originals. Sage used varying tapers and materials to best match up each line weight with their intended duties. The handsome shadetree green blank color matches style with performance. Kit includes blank of your choice, epoxy, rod finish, brushes, winding checks, hook keeper, thread, double-foot chrome snake guides, rosewood reel seat (8 wts. come with a black aluminum reel seat), premium cork grip, tip top and instructions. - $279.99
