Sage’s BOLT Fly Rod Family Takes on Driving Winds and Long Distances
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Washington
[dropcap]C[/dropcap]omplementing the award-winning, medium-fast action ACCEL, Sage’s new BOLT fly rod family is the ultra-fast action take on Generation 5 technology.
“Anglers looking for long distances, fast line speeds and quick recovery in a fly rod need look no further than the BOLT,” says Sage chief rod designer Jerry Siem. “The ultra-fast action of these rods makes high line speeds and tight loops easier, giving anglers the casting confidence needed in demanding conditions.”
The BOLT comes in a salmonfly blank color highlighted with orange thread wraps and black trim wraps. Fuji ceramic stripper guides and hard chromed snake guides and tip-top complete the blank. A stealth black anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat is on both freshwater and saltwater models, but the freshwater has a rosewood insert and the saltwater models are finished with a fighting butt. All models are finished with a snub nose, half-wells cork handle. A black rod bag with salmonfly logo and model tag and black ballistic nylon rod tube with divided liner come with each model. The BOLT comes in 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 weights in 9-foot lengths and will be available August 2015 and will retail for $650.
