Sage’s popular new rod series for technical conditions also comes in Spey and Switch models. The Igniter Spey and Switch rods perpetuate everything we love about the Igniter one-handed rods and add big water two-handed fishing capabilities to an already-great series. These rods are perfect for windy steelhead days in the western US, technical salmon fishing in Canada, difficult saltwater angling, and much more.
KonneticHD Technology - Sage has completely redefined graphite technology with KonneticHD. By restructuring the graphite-to-resin ratio used in rod blanks, Sage has introduced a higher density fiber composite that’s lighter, stronger, and more versatile on the water. With KonneticHD the Igniter has incredibly efficient energy transfer capabilities, perfected rod stiffness, and element-defying durability. What does all this mean? Tighter loops, faster line speed, and superior foul weather casting ability.
Fuji Ceramic Stripping Guides - Fuji ceramic guides have stood the test of time as high-performance guides in fly fishing. Ceramic guides offer durability and easy line shooting capabilities.
Ultra-Light Hard Chromed Snake Guides - Snake guides decrease overall rod weight and provide industry-accepted functionality to the Igniter Spey Rod.
Downlocking w/Gunmetal Anodized Aluminum - The Spey version of the Igniter has a reel seat that’s corrosion resistant and weatherproof. Anodized aluminum protects against wear and a downlocking component adds to the functionality of the Igniter Spey. Sage has also built an integrated hidden hook keeper into the reel seat. The reel seat of the Igniter Spey is similar to the seat on the one-handed Igniter saltwater rod models.
Powder Coated Aluminum Rod Tube - The Igniter comes in a classic black powder coated aluminum rod tube with the easily identifiable Sage medallion. The aluminum rod tube keeps the Igniter safe during travel and time off of the water.
The Sage Lifetime Warranty - As of January 2021, 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. Repair fees are based on the age of the rod and Sage charges a $30 processing fee for rods that are part of the current lineup. For up to the minute warranty information, please contact Sage Repairs at 888-848-7243
