INCREASED PULLING & LIFTING POWER
With the vastness of the saltwater environment comes fish that, pound for pound, just fight harder. With that, you need a rod that can fight back. The SALT HD series is built with a seriously stout blank that can not only help put the stop on a blistering Bonefish or tail-walking Tarpon, but is able to effectively lift heavy fish to the surface when they go deep.
MODELS TUNED PER FISHERY APPLICATION
From the 790-4 with a lighter tip to keep skinny-water tailing Bonefish from spooking, to the ultra-powerful 1191-4 ready to wrangle a tail-walking Tarpon to the boat, the individual models of the SALT HD are specifically tuned to excel in their intended application.
OVERSIZED GUIDE-SET TO HELP REDUCE TANGLES
When saltwater gamefish are on the line, the last thing you want is line getting wrapped around the guides and tangling, or a knot jamming up and breaking off your first Tarpon. The oversized guide-set on the SALT HD helps make sure that your cast delivers the fly as smooth as silk, and larger saltwater knots slide through without a hitch.

Building upon proprietary construction techniques developed for Konnetic Technology, KonneticHD gives us an elevated platform to achieve new levels in rod design.
MADE IN USA
At Sage, craftsmanship is our people. We’re not a big faceless factory, but rather a workplace of craftspeople who design and build the world’s best fly rods and reels using our hands and hearts. We do it by sharing ideas and always asking the next question to find what can be done to make this better. Our rods are built one at time right here on Bainbridge Island, WA, following hundreds of meticulous steps and passing through 23 sets of hands. Our reels are also designed right here, and then precision-crafted with exclusive USA carbon to tolerance only Sage can deliver. We’re out there fishing the same places in the same unforgiving conditions that you are. Craftsmanship is applied experience. Lifetimes of it.
