This Sage Rod is built in the USA and this combination pairs nicely for contact style nymphing because of the weights available in the reel to help you custom tune it to your liking. It's the perfect system. The rod is great value as its built here in the US with Sage's legendary craftsmanship and supreme quality control. We like this combo because we feel like at +/- $1,000 you are balancing your investment wisely. The Sage SENSE has a serious cult following in the western states.
Our "Ready to Fish" Setups will ship to you with backing, fly line, and most often the leader installed. Just be sure to let us know if you reel with your right hand, otherwise we default to left hand retrieve. Do this in the order comments.
