Sage Igniter 590-4 9'0" 5WT 4pc Fly Rod
Yes, they just get better and better! We have been Sage agents since 1984 and have watched the progression of fly rod technology throughout the generations and you have guessed it - this is the best yet. As owner of Complete Angler, I have cast many rods over those years, and this one stands out as the smoothest "power" rod out there. Ideal for the winds of the South Island, superb for casting long leaders accurately and forgivingly effortless to cast, here is the next rod to add to my collection.
The most demanding conditions require a different kind of tool. Strong head wind? Fish at distance? Bulky rigs? Heavy sink-tips? The IGNITER is tuned to handle the most technical of conditions. Not a rod for the everyday angler, the IGNITER is equipped with a high line speed taper to carry large amounts of line at distance with wind cutting performance. Perfect for streamer fishing with heavy sink tips or covering big water when conditions turn south. If you bring the will, the IGNITER will supply the way.
