Over the years Sage has learned a lot about rod building, and by casting the Accel you will feel how much they have learned. The Sage Accel is a medium-fast action rod with a punch. This rod gives you the ability to throw tight loops while casting large flies, through wind, rain, and bugs, the ultimate Alaskan fly rod under $600.

From Us:
If you liked the Sage VXP, you will love the Accel. The Sage Accel is an American made fly rod for under $600 that doesn’t cower to the Dolly Llama. It has enough strength to bring in a large king or coho, and also enough finesse for trout fishing. The Accel is a great all around trout and salmon rod that any angler would enjoy.

A quick note on how to read Sage's rod sizes. Lets take an 896-4 as an example. The first number is the rod weight. In this case it is an 8 weight. The next two numbers are the rod length in feet and inches. This rod is 9 feet 6 inches. Then there is a dash 4 which means it is a four piece rod.
The "Wild Cards." Sage also makes a few trout rods that are equipped with a fighting butt, full wells grip and anodized aluminum reel seat. They are the 691-4 (#6 9' 0") and 697-4 (#6 9' 6").
