Sage MOD Fly Rods
June 23, 2015
Here we go folks, a new toy to play with. Sage just went public with their latest premium fly rod, the Sage MOD Fly Rod, the name is short for moderate action and specific for trout fishing, although it comes in many weights and lengths. The action was born from the need for accuracy, touch, and oh yea - the pure joy that we get from casting fine rods. It is a fine casting instrument and something that once purchased will offer anglers a high level casting experience for decades.
I am glad to see this rod hit the market for many reasons, but the #1 is that I see a lot of loyal Sage owners that want a high end rod and wound up buying the Sage ONE, an amazing rod, but it was simply too fast an action for both their skills and intents. The ONE is pretty high octane and makes it tough to feather a soft touch cast with an elk hair Caddis in against a pile of brush. The MOD was designed for fisherman that want optimum performance at real world distances.
We just placed a healthy pre-order of these rods that should be here August 1st. Here is some more information about the details. I really like the look of this rod and predict that it will be one of our best sellers.
Sage MOD Spey Rods
The Sage MOD is offered in both 6 and 7 weights in the 13' length. I personally like my spey rods to have some character and a progressive action. I really like the Sage ACCEL myself, so I am very excited to get my greedy paws on the new Sage MOD!
