The Sage X Spey Rod has been discontinued.


We recommend the Sage Spey R8 as an alternative.


The X Switch adds a useful dimension to the X series. Whether you’re throwing large nymph rigs for Steelhead or Spey casting for Salmon, the X Switch provides an unparalleled angler experience. KonneticHD creates a rod that’s deep loading and surprisingly powerful. Sage has found a way to partner the power of the X Switch with impressive smoothness and accuracy to create a rod that’s the definition of high performance across all categories. 


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 X Switch 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 two-handed casting ability. 

Color, Wraps, and Action - The X Switch sports a black spruce blank color with dark green thread wraps and metallic grey trim wraps. The rod’s blank color and design is sleek and stylish. Sage calls the X Switch a ‘fast action’ rod. 

Fuji Ceramic Stripping Guides - Fuji Ceramic Stripping Guides allow anglers to shoot line effortlessly when casting the Sage X Switch. Fuji guides also have a durable design to minimize weathering and wear on the river. 

Hard Chromed Snake Guides - Snake guides offer industry-accepted performance and time-proven durability. The guides, and all componentry on the Sage X Switch, match the finish and componentry on the Sage X Spey. 

Reel Seat


Uplocking w/Black Anodized Aluminum - The Sage X Switch has a reel seat that is corrosion-resistant and weatherproof. Stealth black anodized aluminum protects against wear and an uplocking component locks large two-handed reels in place. The handle of the X Switch is made with top-notch, Super Plus grade cork that’s smooth in hand and perseveres over the course of many seasons on the water. 

Rod Tube

Powder Coated Aluminum Rod Tube - The X Switch comes in a classic evergreen powder coated aluminum rod tube with an easily identifiable Sage medallion. The aluminum rod tube keeps the X safe during travel and time off the water. 


The Sage Lifetime 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.
