Leveraging its proprietary HD technology, Sage has created a new saltwater fly rod that is both easier to cast and more powerful than any predecessor.  The Salt HD essentially comes in the same lengths and line weights as the prior “Salt” series, but feels like a more contiguous family of rods.  Across the board, they are easier to cast and more consistent in their actions.  We would describe them as fastaccurate and solid, but lacking the imposing stiffness of the previous series, especially in line weights 10-12.  Salt HD rods are heavier and tougher than equivalent X rod models.  In the Salt HD, Sage offers their traditional combination of high line speed casting with brute strength for controlling ocean fish. 

“Opportunities to catch saltwater species range dramatically from spooky bonefish on the flats to heart-pounding GT runs, so we created a rod that performs in all scenarios,” said Jerry Siem, Sage chief rod designer. “With that in mind, each rod in this family was designed specifically for a purpose – allowing for quick shots and even quicker second shots yet having the pulling power and ability to perform delicate presentations when needed.”

About Konnetic Technology

sage-konnetic-chart.png

Improved accuracy is a result of smoother tracking and increased line speed and line control... all features of Sage’s revolutionary Konnetic Technology. Creating an impossibly light blank with enhanced hand-to-fly sensitivity, Konnetic Technology utilizes advanced modulus positioning that places carbon 

fibers to exacting tolerances. This creates slimmer blank profiles with unparalleled strength and efficient energy transfer throughout the shaft. Konnetic Technology’s highly responsive and robust blanks feel connected, offering significantly enhanced torsional stability and minimal vibration for casts that track effortlessly and accurately.

  • Unique, proprietary carbon/resin composite developed specifically for Konnetic Technology rods and found exclusively in Sage rods.
  • Advanced modulus positioning creates slimmer profiles, greater strength, and more efficient energy transfer along the length of the shaft.
  • Optimized hoop to axial fiber positioning reduces blank weight and enhances cross-sectional strength
and performance.
  • High compression molding for increased fiber density, reducing weight with uncompromised durability.
  • Superior tracking through minimized lateral and torsional movement.
  • Focused energy transfer creates greater connectivity with less effort.

 

About Sage:
Sage has pushed the boundaries of fly fishing since it was founded in 1980 by legendary rod designer Don Green. Don applied the knowledge and experience gained from building rods for Fenwick and Grizzly when he started Sage, with the specific goal of creating high-performance rods that will never run out of power. As Sage’s powerful yet delicate rods gained a following, the company continued to innovate fly rod technology and in 1986, Sage introduced the first saltwater-specific fly rods. Today, Sage is still pushing the boundaries of what a fly rod can do and is one of the most popular brands in the California Fly Shop. Whether you’re fishing for trout or tarpon, these rods will maximize your casting efficiency without sacrificing sensitivity. All Sage rods and blanks are hand-made in Bainbridge Island, Washington, and covered by Sage’s lifetime, original owner warranty.

 

Product Videos

Sage Salt HD Jumpin' Jack Flash (01:00)
Got to to pop a few nice jacks on the new Sage Salt HD this morning that will be replacing the Salt series later this Summer and I have nothing but great things to say about it. In the video The Salt HD felt great casting a medium sized popper effortless into a little head wind and the rod during the fight had plenty of lifting power on what I would call a 20lb jack. I took my time fighting this jack in the video as it was my first one on fly of the season. After releasing this fish I hooked another jack a few minutes later and really put the heat on this fish that was bigger around 25lbs. I boated the next fish in half the time and really but the brakes on and the lifting power of the rod really impressed me. The 11wt Salt HD is gonna be one of my favorite rods in my quiver for sure for these big jacks, along with bull redfish, sharks and cobia that we target on the fly here in the low country. Looking forward to getting my hand on all of the other weight Salt HD's later this summer!
