News Release - New Sage Foundation Fly Rod Family

The New Sage Foundation Fly Rod and Outfits replace the Approach Series. Staying with the Sage tradition, the New Foundation Rods, like all Sage rods, are handcrafted in the USA. The Sage Foundation is designed to perform over a wide range of needs. Fast and powerful enough to fish effectively while maintaining feel and user friendliness.  A key note and welcome addition is the stub nose wells grip found on all sizes. From the first time I cast a Sage rod with the stub nose wells grip I knew I never wanted to go back, and I never have.

Here is what the Sage Media Release says about the New Sage Foundation

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. (June 29, 2017) – Sage takes great pride in handcrafting rods on Bainbridge Island, USA. Each one is touched by 27 pairs of hands on its path from proprietary graphite strands to the finest performance fly rods on the market. The new FOUNDATION family is no different.
Capitalizing on performance aspects of Graphite IIIe Technology, the FOUNDATION rod family is fast action built for multi-application. From dry fly fishing a hatch at dawn to nymphing through a hot summer afternoon, this rod covers it all. The FOUNDATION delivers signature Sage feel with stellar components such as ceramic stripper guides, hard chrome snake guides and tip-top, black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat, and a snub nose cork handle with fighting butt on saltwater weights. 
These rods range from 4 through 8-weight and retail for $325. The FOUNDATION is also sold as an Outfit in each model and is paired with Sage’s 2200 series reel and RIO Gold fly line for $525. All models have a lifetime warranty and come with a nylon rod tube or rod and reel case for the outfits.
