The Sage ONE fly rod is designed to be accurate in all conditions, making it the perfect all-round rod. If you need to place your line accurately come rain, wind or shine, the Sage ONE is the ideal option. Sage describes the ONE rod as "game changing," and it's hard to disagree.
Konnetic Technology - At the core of the ONE is Sage's Konnetic technology. It's the most recent and significant evolution in fly rod innovation. 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 ONE also features a "Black Ice" shaft color with black primary thread wraps with bronze 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 a lifetime.
Hard chromed snake guides - The long-time standard for fly rod guides, the chrome snake guides both look and perform exceptionally well.
Walnut wood insert and Golden Bronze anodized aluminum reel seat - The ONE's freshwater models feature a gorgeous walnut wood insert atop their anodized aluminum dual-uplocking reel seat. It's both functional and attractive.
Golden Bronze colored anodized reel seat - Full wells models of the ONE combine their standard Super plus cork with a fully saltwater safe anodized aluminum reel seat. Naturally, it's a dual uplocking model to make sure you're reeling in fish, not fishing for your reel.
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.
The Sage Warranty - Every new Sage rod, blank and Sage reel is covered by a lifetime, original owner warranty. One of the finest warranties in the business, it covers defects in materials or workmanship as well as rods that fail due to misuse, negligence or normal wear-and-tear. Sage charges a $75 processing fee for the warranty.

- Not the "broomstick" they make it out to be Review by Jeffrey
It is definitely fast action, no doubt about it. The thing that separates this from a lot of the other fast action is feel, and this rod has it in spades. It casts small dries very acceptably, to my surprise.
I would gladly buy another if I had to - its a wonderful rod. Posted on 3/16/15
- Remarkable fly rod Review by Matt B
The Sage One 9'6" 5wt I just bought and used for the first time blew my mind. I had no idea how far rod building technology had advanced. I have NEVER cast a rod like this....unbelievably light weight and balanced. Pin point accuracy, even with 50-60 feet of line out.
Most remarkable characteristic, unlike my old, early graphite rods, is that there is no side to side wiggle throughout the casting stroke to rob energy and accuracy from your cast (just as it shows in their promotional illustrations).
If you're in the market for a new rod, cast this one. You'll likely go home with it. Posted on 11/6/13
