Sage claims its latest line of fly rods, the VXP, includes the most powerful fast-action rods the company has offered at a midrange price point. With a slender shaft design that reduces overall weight and generates high line speed, each rod in this series is smooth and responsive. The four-piece rods are offered in 3-weight through 10-weight, with the saltwater models featuring a fully anodized aluminum reel seat. The VXP's shafts are a beautiful shade-tree green appointed with dark green, silver and black trim wraps and hard-chromed snake guides. For anglers who prefer two-handed casting, the VXP is offered in that design in 6- and 7-weight models. MSRP ranges from $485 to $525. www.sageflyfish.com
