Our new favorite streamer rod and will also go to the Bahamas with us! The only Sage 5wt with the saltwater seat.
Introducing the new Xi3 Series 8'9" 5wt saltwater/streamer fly rod. Through their exclusive SaltH2O Technology, SAGE Xi3 rods provide a groundbreaking level of torque and torsion resistance for superior tracking and less wasted energy at all distances. SaltH2O’s unique layer interface and proprietary resin also combine for maximum strength—even in high heat environments—and significantly less weight.
Sage's G5 construction adds improved line feel for easier, more intuitive casting, and specialized saltwater-specific components complete the package. In other words, the new Xi3 is everything you need to make that first shot count.
