This Custom built Sage SALT HD 12 weight features materials and additional features not found on factory Sage rods. From the natural black rubber (Fuji) fighting butt to the TiCh (Titanium Carbide) running guides this rod possesses durability on another level. That might be something you’d be interested in if you are pursuing fish with this high line number fly rod (12). There’s more. Following the methods applied to blue-water boat rods we have laid a layer of rod building thread under the first three stripping guides as a protective cushion between the rod blank and these large Nanolite guides. This is called a “True” under wrap. Mr. Joel Lemke made us this double-locking ring, saltwater, anodized aluminum reel seat to compliment our Ocean Blue and Titanium color scheme. And finally, this specific handle which I personally designed and tested on Everglades Tarpon prevents reaching too far up the rod blank yet comfortably above the position of the casting grip in one elongated piece. That is, one piece made with the best Portuguese cork which was pressed and hand shaped on the blank. This method puts 100% of the handle material in solid contact, no air spaces, with the rod blank- which you won’t find anything close to that on any factory rod. We paired this beefy rod with a spacious 2.5″ diameter protective aluminum tube- yes, big enough for two puny fly rods but only one 12 weight.
