You practice, fish hard, spend hours on the river, and have paid your dues, so it's no wonder you use the Sage Method 4 Piece Fly Rod. Built on Sage's Konnetic technology, the Method produces high line speeds and tight loops for extreme distance and wind cutting casts all while maintaining critical accuracy and feel. Konnetic technology uses an advanced modulus positioning system by which Sage precisely aligns carbon fibers to exacting tolerances for optimal performance in the blank. In addition, Sage's layup process features a high compression molding process wherein carbon fibers are compressed for optimal density in a narrow diameter blank, with a carbon inner core that's 50% lighter than previous rod cores. As a result, Sage is able to deliver the Method an ultra fast action fly rod that's able to punch through the wind and carry the biggest, bulkiest, heaviest flies in your box out to where they can work their magic. The magma red colored shaft of the Method is complemented by rust colored primary thread wraps and pewter trim wraps. Fuji ceramic stripping guides and robust guide sets round out the features of this high end rod series. Its freshwater series 4 6wt features a snub nose, half wells grip while the Method's saltwater series 6 10wt has a full wells grip with fighting butt. For protection during transport and storage, the Method comes with a black rod sock and a fusion red powder coated rod tube with a silver colored medallion and gloss black end caps.
