Sage's new offering of the saltwater specific SALT Fly Rod provides anglers with the precision and power needed to land bones, tarpon, and permit all in the same day. In what Sage is calling its salt action, the Salt fly rod boasts a fast action designed specifically for saltwater fishing along with a high line speed to make those long, and often difficult, presentations to skittish bone fish in the flats. Slightly more robust than its predecessor, the Xi3, the Salt is specifically built to stand up to big fish when you need to steer them away from a stand of mangroves and to punch heavy flies through wind while still delivering an accurate and precise presentation. Since the Salt features Sage's Konnetic Technology, you can rest assured that you'll be able to effortlessly drop your fly right where it needs to be from 50 feet out without spooking the fish. The Salt also features a burlier fighting butt, as well as heavy duty, stealth black anodized aluminum up locking reel seat. An integrated hidden hook keeper gives you a place to secure your fly when you're on the move, and the included electric blue aluminum rod tube ensures your rod makes it to your destination intact.
