Xi2 Saltwater Fly Rod

Fly Rod
$620-$695

Manufacturers Description:
"Built with our innovative new Generation 5 technology, these rods are at once lighter and more lively than their predecessors. But that's only the beginning. The truly revolutionary benefits of the Xi2 are revealed when you cast it. The Modulus Positioning System (MPS) we developed for these rods provides a startling level of "line feel" throughout the casting stroke. This enhanced ability to feel the rod load allows you to apply power more efficiently. Which, in turn, means tighter loops, better wind penetration and more distance. Xi2 Series rods also feature new, lower profile, oversized guides and a round tip-top guide to reduce friction, as well as an improved, saltwater-safe reel seat. No matter which saltwater challenges you face—from bonefish to billfish—the Xi2 lets you concentrate on the fish instead of your casting. That's fishability. Test cast the new Xi2. We think you'll see why we consider it the finest saltwater fly rod ever made. "

The Low Down:
Had a chance to check out one of Sage’s new Xi2’s at the Eastern Spey Clave this past fall. The Ontario rep had the 990-4 and allowed me to take it for a test drive! The first thing I noticed about it was the factory finish was very nice and used high quality salt water resistant components. Equally impressive to the rods finish was the performance; super light and super fast. Most of the testers had absolutely no problem throwing a full line into a stiff breeze. If you’re a beginner this probably isn’t the rod for you. For experienced caster looking for a cannon, look no further! - BD
