Sage BOLT; NEW
Sage BOLT There’s no-doubt that fast action rods are this decade’s new black. And for good reason – nothing beats fast-action for quick and accurate casts when sight fishing. So with this in mind, the new Generation 5 Technology BOLT rod from Sage should prove to be very popular. Available from 4 thru 8 weights, the BOLT is a mid-range ultra-fast action rod, which should prove ideal for sight fishing techniques.
Sage MOD – Best New Fly Rod EFFTEX 2015 NEW
I’m predicting that this taper will be the new go-to river rod for Australian anglers, and lovers of the classic SLT range. A high-performance moderate action rod, somewhere between the fast action ONE and the deep-loading CIRCA, this should be a cracking taper for hatch-driven fly fishing where a bit of extra power is needed from time to time. The MOD will be available from 2-6 weights, and uses SAGE Konnetic Technology for class-leading rod-tip tracking and accuracy. The MOD just took out the Best New Fly Rod award at the European Tackle Show for 2015.
Sage PULSE; NEW
Sage PULSE Featuring the tried and tested Graphite IIIe Technology, the new PULSE is a fast action fly rod, with the usual quality fixtures, lifetime warranty and made in the USA badge as to be expected from SAGE, These are great rods for anglers looking to upgrade their basic fly rod, or get into fly fishing with some quality gear that they can grow into
The Little Ones: New
The SAGE TXL-f series has come to a close, with this end comes a new beginning here in the form of, “The New Little Ones” with 5 models featuring an 8’2” length in 0-4 weight. The big news here is that this small ball collection is built on the Konnetic technology platform and like its big brother, the ONE series provides un-paralleled accuracy and line control. That feeling found in the world’s most accurate fly rod now is found in the delightful “Little Ones.”
Sage CLICK Series fly reels – Best New Fly Reel EFTTEX 2015
The CLICK series of reels has always been a favourite of mine. In fact, the last fish I caught this season was a cracking double-figure brown, which was a bundle of fun on my decade-old CLICK reel. So it is cool to hear that the range is getting a cosmetic and performance upgrade. Now available in Bronze, Stealth and a new Lime colour, new features include a concave spool design (for cleaner line-storage and increased capacity), a larger palming ring and an ultra-large arbor. The CLICK series of reels just took out the Best New Fly Reel award at the European Tackle Show for 2015.
