Saltwater angling is more often a game of quick shots than long casts. Dropping a fly in front of a cruising tarpon 20ft off the bow can be the difference between success and failure during a day on the flats. In fact, most saltwater fisheries put a premium on getting the fly to the target quickly.
Redfish meandering about Louisiana marshes, bonefish cruising marl-covered flats, and stripers slashing at bait all require a quick cast into “the zone” for high odds at a hookup. The quicker you can lay the fly down, the better the results.
Sage’s MAVERICK fly rod has been designed to maximize these quick-shot fly fishing opportunities with a powerful tip section that drives the casting load down to more robust lower sections, making it easier to fire these quick efficient casts and helping the angler make the most of their finite opportunities. With a true saltwater specific backbone and design, the MAVERICK is ready for any salty challenge thrown its way.
QUICK-SHOT PRESENTATIONS: Whether it’s a school of Bonefish coming in hot at 10 o’clock or a ravenous Roosterfish charging bait in the surf, you need a rod that can quickly deliver the fly to where it needs to be. The MAVERICK features a responsive blank that gives anglers the ability to quickly pick-up and re-cast, changing direction to where the fish are headed next.
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 MAVERICK 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.
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.
KONNETIC: Improved accuracy is a result of smoother tracking and increased line speed and line control... all features of Sage’s revolutionary Konnetic Technology®. Creating an impossibly light blank with enhanced hand-to-fly sensitivity, Konnetic Technology utilizes advanced modulus positioning that places carbon fibres to exacting tolerances. This creates slimmer blank profiles with unparalleled strength and efficient energy transfer throughout the shaft. Konnetic Technology’s highly responsive and robust blanks feel connected, offering significantly enhanced torsional stability and minimal vibration for casts that track effortlessly and accurately.
