When conditions get technical, anglers want a fly rod that will meet the demand, so renowned fly rod manufacturer, Sage, brings the IGNITER to market August 2018.
“Anglers often find themselves faced with challenging fishing scenarios; like fish laying at long distances, strong head winds, bulky rigs, and heavy sink tips, but the IGNITER is built to handle these situation with confidence,” said Paul Schmierer, Sage senior R&D design engineer. “These rods are ideal for carrying and holding line for long shots, casters with a quick tempo, or situations when more power is required.”
Freshwater versions have a cocobolo wood insert with gunmetal anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat and Flor grade, snub-nosed, half-wells cork handle. The saltwater options have gunmetal anodized up-locking reel seats with integrated hidden hook keeper and Flor grad full-wells cork handle with an EVA fighting butt. All models have Fuji ceramic stripper guides and hard chromed snake guides and tip-top. A chipotle blank color is complemented with cayenne thread wraps with gunmetal trim wraps.
