SONIC Fly Rod Multi-Application / Fast Action

Brand: Sage

Price: $550

At Sage, fast action allows us to build rods that perform a multitude of tasks extremely well. Dating back to the original RP in 1982, chief rod designer Don Green wanted to allow casters to be able to delicately present casts off the tip while simultaneously having access to the reserve of power in the lower sections of the rod. This simple “fast action” design helped open up a rods ability to fish a variety of angling applications and the new SONIC is designed to deliver on just that. From dry fly sipping fish in the calm of the AM, big hoppers in the afternoons, to nymphing through a hatch-less sunny day, the SONIC gives you the ability to do it all.

Whether laying down dry flies with finesse or delivering streamers to distant reaches, the SONIC family of rods provides uncompromising versatility, with a balance of power and feel. Delightfully crisp and lightweight, the SONIC has a level of performance that stands out from the crowd with a fast action taper designed to cover a wide range of fishing applications from dry fly, streamers, to nymphing – floating lines to sinking. Built on Konnetic Technology blanks, casts with the SONIC are as intuitive as they are natural – responsive in hand with excellent tracking qualities. Ready for any application the day has in store. Dressed in a Juniper shaft color with Hardwood insert (anodized aluminum matte slate on fighting-butt models), and charcoal thread wraps that blend into the blank accents, the SONIC sports a timeless and elegant look that fits into most any fly fishing environment. Handcrafted in the USA and packaged in a premium rod bag and tube, we’ve pulled out all the stops to create a family of rods ideal for any application – any angler. Cast With Confidence.
