Sage SONIC Fly Rods // Fast Action
This rod cements Sage as the current owner of the $500 price range for fly rods. At Red's we've tested the SONIC and found that in raw performance for high line speed in tight windows, there aren't many rods better. In a head to head up close, there are some better choices for short casts where a bit more flex is welcome.
Sage SONIC Single Hand Rods
Whether laying down dry flies with finesse or delivering streamers to distant reaches, the SONIC family of rods provides uncompromised versatility, with a balance of power and feel. Delightfully crisp and lightweight, the SONIC has a level of performance that stands out from the crowd with a fast action taper designed to cover a wide range of fishing applications from dry fly, streamers, to nymphing - floating lines to sinking. Built on Konnetic Technology blanks, casts with the SONIC are as intuitive as they are natural - responsive in hand with excellent tracking qualities. Ready for any application the day has instore.
Dressed in a Juniper shaft color with Hardwood insert (anodized aluminum matte slate on fighting-butt models), and charcoal thread wraps that blend into the blank accents, the SONIC sports a timeless and elegant look that fits into most any fly fishing environment. Handcrafted in the USA and packaged in a premium rod bag and tube, we’ve pulled out all the stops to create a family of rods ideal for any application - any angler. Cast With Confidence.
