The new Sage Z Axis Rods have combined a refined feel with new technology and created one heck of a rod. The Z-Axis replaced one of the most popular rods in the world, the XP. Using new Generation 5 (G5) graphite rod building technology Sage has trimmed some weight off while creating a stronger rod with more feel at the tip. It's a fast action rod that is quite different from the norm.
It's fast alright, but it's fast in that it throws the line for you as you stroke your cast, rather than punching line out there with a brute force type cast. Not only will it get your line out there with ease, you'll find that mending and throwing heavy rigs can also be achieved with little effort. The Z-Axis is forgiving and great for any angler's skill set.
A few words from Sage
"We went back to the drawing board to create the incredible new Sage Z Axis Series Fast Action Rods. By improving the entire rod-building process, we created a rod that's significantly lighter, stronger and easier to cast for anglers of all skill levels. The Z-Axis offers an entirely new level of fishability with unprecedented line feel, response and performance."
To take advantage of these developments, Jerry Siem went back to the drawing board (and out on the water) to create improved taper designs for each Sage Z Axis fly rod. The G5 process gave him an opportunity to reach previously unattainable levels of line feel, response and performance.
It also allowed him to design rods that better fit the modern casting style, with the tip strength to bail you out on a missed stroke and the power to more easily punch flies into the wind. The result? An entirely new level of fishability.
