The Sage Igniter fly rods continue the tradition of technical, fast action rods that the company is so famous for. The original was the TCR, then came the TCX, most recently the Method, and now comes......the Igniter. As you know, the most demanding conditions require a different kind of tool.

Strong head wind? Fish at distance? Bulky rigs? Heavy sink-tips? The INGITER is tuned to handle the most technical of conditions. Not a rod for the everyday angler, the IGNTER is equipped with a high line speed taper to carry large amounts of line at distance with wind cutting performance. Perfect for streamer fishing with heavy sink tips or covering big water when conditions turn south.

If you bring the will, the IGNITER will supply the way.
