The new Sage Motive saltwater fly rods give anglers an option to the Salt HD and a lower price, due to cost savings associated with not using the most expensive new technology, KonneticHD.
The Motive fly rod is made using Sage’s tried and true Graphite IIIe technology. This rod is powerful but smooth with a fast action that loads quickly and handles heavy saltwater flies.
Graphite IIIe is a proprietary carbon/resin composite. This graphite is built using a glass scrim layer to reduce weight and increase cross-sectional durability and performance. The modulus positioning enhances blank strength and performance along the length of the blank.
Saltwater anglers often use many fly rods. Due to the lower cost of the Motive, you can increase the size of your arsenal by owning more rods for less money. Sure, you won’t have the finest fly rod made by Sage for saltwater use. But, you may be better off by having more options.
The choice is yours so think about what is most important to you.
Sage Motive Saltwater Fly Rods are available in 9’ lengths, in line weights 6 through 12.
These rods are handcrafted in the Sage manufacturing facility on Bainbridge Island, WA in the USA.
The action is fast. The blank is beautiful, a Bluefin Blue color with blue thread wraps and Royal Blue and Black trim wraps.
The guides and tip-top are oversized, using ceramic on the strippers and hard chrome for the snake guides and tip-top.
The rods comes packaged and will be stored in a Blue Steel ballistic nylon rod tube with a divided liner.
The handles include a black anodize aluminum up-locking reel seat with a hook keeper. The grip is cork, shaped in a full-wells configuration with a fighting butt.
The Sage Motive is a great saltwater fly rod at a reasonable cost of $499 which includes the rod tube.
