WOW!! That was our first response when handling this little gem. Incredibly light in hand and the perfect action for fishing to smaller fish with the European Nymphing Methods that are gaining popularity here in the States.
The Sage ESN 10 foot 3 weight is perfect for most streams where the fish are of average size. Incredible feel and sensitivity thanks in part to the Konnetic Technology graphite used in the blank and the super supple tip section. You can feel every little nook and cranny of the rocks on the bottom and strike detection is absolutely amazing!!
Finally a European Nymphing taper built right here in the US!!! Thanks Sage
About Sage Konnetic Technology: "Konnetic Technology combines proprietary aerospace-grade materials with innovative manufacturing methods and processes. The impossibly lighter rods built utilising this technology provide ultimate line control and accuracy due to enhanced tip-to-hand sensitivity and feedback, yet still retain Sage's renowned power and durability.
"Konnetic Technology incorporates an optimised ratio of Sage's proprietary resin to carbon fibre with our Advanced Modulus Positioning System (AMPS), a process that places the carbon materials to exacting tolerances for the greatest blank strength and efficient energy transfer throughout the shaft. "Using our High Compression Molding (HCM) process, the blank's carbon fibres are compacted for optimum density and precise alignment, simultaneously fusing the 50% lighter all-carbon fibre inner core."
