News Release - New Sage Salt HD

New for 2018 - Sage Salt HD
While it seems to me that Sage builds its legacy on rods such as the ONE or X, it's the Sage Saltwater series of rods that really get my attention. There is something about those fast action powerful rods that ignite my adrenaline.

Continuing onward into the Konnetic HD platform found in the Sage X Series, the New Salt HD promises to deliver more pulling and lifting power.

I'll have my hands on this new rod next week at the IFTD / I-CAST event. I can't wait to give it a test drive.

Here is what the Sage Media Release says about the New Sage Salt HD
Building on the success of the X using KonneticHD technology, renowned fly rod manufacturer Sage introduces the SALT HD. Offering more pulling authority and increased line lifting power than standard fast action rods, the SALT HD will ensure anglers can tame any saltwater species.
“Opportunities to catch saltwater species range dramatically from spooky bonefish on the flats to heart-pounding GT runs, so we created a rod that performs in all scenarios,” said Jerry Siem, Sage chief rod designer. “With that in mind, each rod in this family was designed specifically for a purpose - allowing for quick shots and even quicker second shots yet having the pulling power and ability to perform delicate presentations when needed.”

These Made in the USA rods, feature KonneticHD Technology for ultralight, strong, and slim blanks to help reduce fatigue and slice through the wind. The oversized hard chromed snake guides and tip-top ensure large saltwater knots slide smoothly, and the heavy-duty anodized aluminum reel seat is uplocking to ensure stability. Combined with a full-wells cork handle and a laser etched line weight on the slide band, these rods are ready to rock-and-roll when the fish of a lifetime swims by. 
Available in 6 -16 weights, each individual model is purpose-built for a specific saltwater application. The Squid Ink blank color pairs perfectly with Black thread wraps and Blue trim wraps. True to all premium Sage rods, the SALT HD comes with a custom rod bag, powder coated aluminum rod tube, and a lifetime warranty. MSRP: $950.
