The X rod’s all-new fast action taper, built with Sage's KonneticHD Technology, delivers greater blank recovery and a crisper tip stop - creating tighter, more efficient loops throughout all ranges of casting styles. This taper allows you to dig deeper into the rod and access the lower sections, shifting power closer to the angler. Decreased lateral and medial movement and vibrations in the blank result in a more accurate and efficient presentation, resulting in a performance-driven, forgiving fast-action blank - refining the synergy between angler, rod, line and fly.

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 sold at 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.

Warranty Information


The Sage Lifetime Warranty
Every new Sage rod, blank and Sage series reel is covered by a lifetime, original owner warranty.

This warranty is limited to repair and replacement of the rod, blank or reel and does not cover direct, indirect, consequential, incidental or any other type of damage resulting from the use of the product. This warranty does not cover fire, theft, missing rod sections, intentional breakage, modification or customization of the finished rod, or damage during the assembly of a blank into a finished rod. Warranty coverage on Sage blanks does not extend to any custom work or components added to the blanks. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

Rods with serial #'s beginning with the single letters "A - L" (generally manufactured prior to 1995); have an original owner lifetime guarantee against any defect in materials or workmanship. Any of these series of rods that fail due to misuse, negligence or normal wear-and-tear will be repaired or replaced at a reasonable cost. The serial # may be found on the rod directly opposite the Sage logo.
