Sage Introduces The MOD Family of Rods for Trout and Steelhead Anglers
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Washington / June 11, 2015
[dropcap]S[/dropcap]age introduces the MOD with Sage’s Konnetic Technology®. The MOD is a modern interpretation of a moderate action specific for trout fisheries.
“I’ve been thinking about this rod for quite some time now, it was conceived as I fished smaller to medium sized trout streams,” says Sage chief rod designer Jerry Siem. “Konnetic® has made it possible, and it’s quickly become a favorite of our testing team. I like to compare it to the short game in golf, where you need an accurate presentation with a delicate touch. The MOD is optimized for those distances and scenarios.”
The MOD blank is jade colored and has yellow-green thread wraps with black trim wraps. Fuji ceramic stripper guides and hard-chromed snake guides and tip- top complete the blank. The single-hand rods have a zebra wood insert with gloss black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat with a Super Plus cork snub-nose half-wells cork handle. The Spey models feature a gloss black anodized aluminum down-locking reel seat with a Super Plus cork fore and rear grip These rods come in a black powder-coated aluminum rod tube with Sage medallion with a black rod bag with jade logo and model tag. The MOD singled-hand fly rods are available in 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 weights in 9-foot lengths, and the Spey models come in a 6 and 7 weight in 13-foot lengths. Each single-hand model will retail for $850, and the spey models will retail for $1050.
