This is the flagship of the Sage ONE line-up and for a good reason. This is to date one of the finest 5 weight fly rods ever produced. Incredibly light in hand yet capable of generating unbelievable line speeds with little or no effort at all. That is all great news for the angler who wants to fish 80' away but what about the all-round angler who will nymph in the morning, fish dries in the afternoon and after that torrential rain storm, tie on a streamer in the mud? That is why it is called the "ONE"

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."
