Sage has announced the release of another new rod: The TROUT LL. This new rod series from Sage utilizes blank taper optimization, specialized lengths, and Konnetic HD Technology to cater to anglers who prefer small flies, light tippets, and short-range presentations. The rod represents a delicate touch and smooth, easy feedback and feel for a heightened trout experience at close range. Like the Igniter and the Payload rod series' from Sage, the TROUT LL is a highly specialized rod. This rod is sure to be a dry fly angler's kryptonite.
KonneticHD Technology - Sage has completely redefined graphite technology with KonneticHD. By restructuring the graphite-to-resin ratio used in rod blanks, Sage has introduced a higher density fiber composite that’s lighter, stronger, and more versatile on the water. With KonneticHD the TROUT LL has incredibly efficient energy transfer capabilities, perfected rod stiffness, and element-defying durability. What does all this mean? Tighter loops, a smoother casting stroke, and superior accuracy.
Fuji Ceramic Stripping Guides - Fuji ceramic guides have stood the test of time as high-performance guides in fly fishing. Ceramic guides offer durability and easy line shooting capabilities.
Ultra-Light Hard Chromed Snake Guides - Snake guides decrease overall rod weight and provide industry-accepted functionality to the Trout LL. Snake guides also contribute to the rod’s superior line control capabilities and easy line speeds.
Walnut Wood w/ Bronze Uplocking Components - A walnut wood reel seat insert with bronze uplocking componentry and a super plus, snub-nose, half-wells cork handle contribute to the rod's stellar fit and finish. This reel seat is a real work of beauty and craftsmanship.
Powder Coated Aluminum Rod Tube - The Trout LL comes in a Brown powder-coated aluminum rod tube with an easily identifiable Sage medallion. The aluminum rod tube keeps the Trout LL safe during travel and time off of the water.
The Sage Lifetime Warranty - As of January 2021, Every new Sage rod, blank and Sage reel is covered by a lifetime, original owner warranty. One of the finest warranties in the business, it covers defects in materials or workmanship as well as rods that fail due to misuse, negligence, or normal wear-and-tear.
