The first Sage ONE project. Clean and simple, very straightforward big river/lake trout rod. A powerful rod and light as a feather for its size. Maybe the lightest blanks Sage has made so far in the all water/fast action category. The deep gloss black paint on this blank is one-of-a-kind and an eyecatcher. I think this is the first black rod Sage has made. The gold accents complement this blank perfectly. A Sage custom build is not a Sage without the original signature wraps, if you ask me. This rod will make a friend happy. Thanks for looking!
