Sage Foundation 9'8WT
Equipped with a high-performance blank (Graphite IIIe), the FOUNDATION has a fast action providing excellent casting power and effortless control. It’s the very foundation of what defines a Sage rod – Performance - taking your game to another level. Whether you are a guide on the Madison or exploring your backyard waters, the FOUNDATION series delivers the signature Sage feel. For over 35 years we’ve built performance rods one at a time on Bainbridge Island, WA. The same 27 sets of skilled hands that craft all Sage rods construct the FOUNDATION.
Sage's most versatile and popular saltwater rod model. The 890-4 X is able to effectively present flies and handle the fight with bonefish, redfish, striped bass, largemouth bass or other similarly-sized species.
