SAGE Sage Xi3 Series Saltwater Fly Rods

Nowhere is line control, accuracy and line-lifting power more important than in saltwater. Sage has met that challenge head-on with its Xi3 fly rods. The rods have a proprietary blank/taper design utilizing SaltH2O technology. In English, that means fast, saltwater actions, specific salt-resistant components and unmatched power and fish-fighting capabilities. The rods specialize in pinpoint casts at any distance, lifting long lines utilizing exceptional torque and changing direction in a blink of an eye, even while driving long, accurate casts into a brisk salt breeze. To do all this requires torsional resistance and the ability of the rod to rebound instantaneously. That is the Xi3’s forte. Using Sage’s G5 construction, material is placed strategically in the butt section for more power and more sensitivity in the tip. The Modulus Positioning System varies the modulus rating along every inch of the rod, which means maximum performance and reduced weight. Sage finished the job by using Fuji® hard chrome-plate stripping guides with Alconite® ceramic inserts for durability and wear resistance. Guides are oversized for ease of line movement. Salt-safe black anodized reel seats and knurled lock rings secure reels. Full wells handles and EVA-capped fighting butts. Blanks are a striking Pacific blue with cobalt primary wraps highlighted with electric-blue accents. It’s beauty and the beef. Powder-coated aluminum tube with cloth bag. Sage unconditional lifetime warranty. Images depict the style of the rod handle and may not fully represent the actual length.

Sage Xi3 6, 8, 10wt

Date:July 24, 2010
The Sage Xi3 is a marked improvement from the Xi2, and the Xi2 was a GREAT rod! The main areas that you notice the change is in the feel, and ability to fish longer, without the level of fatigue setting in. They are a little more forgiving in all areas. They still look the same, and are still as tough as nails. The tip has a little more life in it, and they feel lighter in your hand. Still fast, and loads of power to lift sink tip lines and cannon a cast to the backing. I really like the changes, they make it more enjoyable rod to fish all day.

Xi3 890-4

Date:April 7, 2011
This is a superb rod for fishing for bonefish. it copes with almost any wind, yet has the precision to cast to most bones most of the time. if you only buy one bonefishing rod this should be the one you get. if you get two get the Xi3 7wt for really shallow feeding fish and still conditions.
