The new Sage X Spey and Switch fly rods have replaced the Sage One as Sage's premium, fast-action Spey and Switch fly rod. The X rods feature a new version of the Konnetic Technology that made the One, Method, and Mod Spey rods so popular. This new version, called KonneticXD Technology and as described by Sage, gives the Sage X greater blank recovery and a crisper tip stop for tighter, more efficient loops during the cast. Sage also describes the new technology benefit as allowing the caster to dig deeper into the rod and access the lower sections, shifting power closer to the angler.
While casting the Sage X Spey and Switch rods, these words do ring true and experienced casters will feel a greater connection to the fly line. Perhaps most impressive to the PFF staff, the X Spey and Switch rods really do come to life when pushing the rod harder for longer casts and carrying more line in the air.
Overall, the Sage X Spey/Switch rods are a very versatile, all-water rod for everything from the shortest of Skagit heads coupled with monster sink tips, to the longer casts with Scandi and Mid-belly lines.
Each Sage X rod comes in a handsome, dark green, aluminum rod tube and a cloth rod sock. The blank color of the Sage X is black at first glance, but with dark green highlights in the sunshine. Thread wraps are very dark green with metallic gray trim wraps. The cork grips on these rods are flor grade and look amazing.
All Sage X Rods are 4-piece rods.
