Product details

The Sage Payload Fly Rod was designed to throw large, heavier flies. Built with Konnetic technology, the carbon fibers are augmented with resin to produce a stronger, lighter, more sensitive fast-action fly rod. The rod features tangle free Fuji ceramic guides to aid in line management. A heavy duty aluminum reel seat secures the reel to the rod. Fly anglers who throw large heavy flies for large predatory fish would use this.

Key Features

  • Lifetime Warranty – The rod comes with a lifetime warranty against breakage.
  • Protective Rod Tube – This rod comes with a protective rod tube for safe storage when not in use.

Fantastic rod for Musky/Pike, with plenty of backbone but also balanced enough to cast all day.

Great saltwater rod with a long strong cast. Good for casting in the wind.
