Sage, one of the premier high-end rod makers in salt water, went back to the drawing board in developing a new saltwater rod. The result? The Z Axis, a significantly lighter, faster, stronger and easier-to-cast rod for anglers of all skill levels.
The new offering provides an entirely new level of fishability with unprecedented line feel, response and performance. The most applicable rods for saltwater applications include four-piece, 9-foot models from 6- to 10-weight. Suggested retail begins at $695. www.sageflyfish.com.
