  • Sage Accel Fly Rod Review

    Posted on July 29, 2014 by Ben F

    Sage’s 2nd most popular rod introduction for 2015 is the all new Accel. The Accel replaces the VXP in Sage’s lineup and is built with Gen 5 technology, just like the old, but still popular, Z-Axis. It’s also green, like the Z-Axis. Since this is the year of re-packaged rods (check out our review on the Winston Nexus), is the Accel a re-packaged Z-Axis?

    We got to try the 590-4 Sage Accel at iCast and decide for ourselves. → Read More

    One of the most intriguing new rods for 2015 is the Winston Nexus. Winston discontinued all of their overseas-made rods this year, which included the very popular Passport and VSL, and replaced them with a made-in-the-USA rod at a very attractive price.

    We got a chance to cast the 9’ 5-weight Nexus this year at iCast. → Read More

  • Sage Salt Fly Rod Review

    Posted on July 21, 2014 by Ben F

    The new Sage SALT Fly Rod is, of course, Sage’s latest and greatest. It replaces the still-good-in-its-own-right, Xi3. It’s always a tall order to replace a rod that people like. Luckily, Jerry Siem had something to fall back on – Konnetic Technology. What is it? Probably some new resin, but I’m no material scientist. What I do know is that it’s produced some pretty great rods so far.

    Calling a fly rod “Salt” is bold. Read on to see if it lives up to it. → Read More
