Sage Payload Fly Rod Blanks, Big fish, big fly. While not always the case, this rule does ring true for many warmwater and saltwater fisheries with anglers casting larger flies than ever before. With a powerful but comfortable casting action, the new PAYLOAD series is designed to help anglers cast those heavy lines and big flies more effectively. Anglers will notice how easy it is to hurl a heavy line and big fly with the PAYLOAD.
Features a fast action for casting large flies and very powerful tip to help pick up heavy lines off the water, the PAYLOAD is tuned for the extreme. These powerful mid sections then transition to a more forgiving butt that allows for a slower and more relaxed casting stroke that reduces fatigue. This softer butt section also allows for more leverage while fighting fish, making it easier to gain ground on hard fighting species. The slightly shorter lengths offer a more effortless cast through a shorter lever and is better for landing fish out of a boat over a traditional 9’0” rod.
Sage blanks are the heart and soul of any rod and make a perfect canvas. Sage provides you with the best in fly rod technology and all you have to do is dress it to match your unique style. All Sage blanks are still proudly hand built and designed in Bainbridge Island, WA.
