Sage X Switch “Big Hitter” Package
$1,999.00 – $2,149.00
The Sage X 8wt. Switch Package is the ultimate big Salmon/Steelhead combo. If your targets include hefty steelhead, silvers that push 20lbs and chum that won’t give up the battle then the 8 weight switch is your rod of choice. Powerful, crisp and easy to cast are just a few words to describe this rod. Lined up with Hatch’s Finatic 9+ reel, Rio’s Switch Chucker and a Rio Medium MOW Kit (T-11), this package is built to cover the most fishing situations possible with just one line.
The Sage X 7wt. Switch Package is crafted for steelhead, big Alaska rainbows (think Naknek/Kenai/Kvichak), out sized Dollies as well as a variety of salmon. The 7 weight is the true all-arounder rod for salmon, trout and steelhead. We line up a Hatch 7 Plus reel with a Rio Switch Chucker and Rio Medium MOW Kit (T-11).
The Sage X 6wt. Switch Package is perfect for dry/nymph/bead fishing for trout of all sizes. Swing small streamers in the early or late season, launch huge overhead casts for Dollies off the beach, or get the indicator rig going and run some awesome bead drifts. The 11 foot rod length makes fishing from tight brushy banks a breeze, while also aiding in mending and highsticking. We match up a Hatch 7 Plus reel with Rio’s Switch Chucker line and a Rio MOW Light Kit (T-8), this rod is the ultimate all around spey or switch casting machine.
Lifetime Warranty on both Rod and Reel.
