Maximum distance isn’t always required. Sometimes it’s just more fun to throw a softer, lighter rod. Sage knows this, and that’s why they built the MOD. The new Sage MOD fly rod uses a MODern, more MODerate action to bring you a more forgiving fly rod for those times when you don’t need a really fast rod. We think the new MOD rods are a more fun and more accessible trout rod that more anglers will enjoy. Here’s why:
Konnetic technology – Like the ONE and Circa before it, the Sage MOD fly rod is built on Sage’s Konnetic technology. It’s the best technology from the most innovative company in fly fishing. Konnetic Technology utilizes proprietary resins and aerospace-grade carbon fiber and combines them Sage’s Advanced Modulus Positioning System (for increased accuracy and strength) and High Compression Molding process to produce a rod that’s much lighter and more accurate than ever before.
The MOD fly rod also features a “Jade” shaft color with yellow-green thread wraps with Black trim wraps.
Fuji Ceramic Stripping Guides – For proven performane durability Sage has chosen the time-tested Fuji ceramic guides, which not only reduce drag, but last for ages.
Hard chromed snake guides – Mod rods are built with Sage’s long-time standard for fly rod guides, the chrome snake guides both look and perform exceptionally well.
Zebra wood insert and Gloss Black anodized aluminum reel seat – Mod rods feature reel seats with exotic Zebra wood inserts and a glossy black anodized aluminum single-uplocking reel seat to keep your reel locked in.
Black powder coated aluminum rod tube with Sage medallion – Sage wants to make sure your investment is protected, and the aluminum rod tube does just that. It also comes with a matching black rod bag with logo and model tag.
