Sage Igniter Fly Fishing Rod
TECHNICAL CONDITIONS / ULTRA-FAST ACTION
When the wind picks up and casting situations get technical, the IGNITER is the rod to reach for. Whether you’re on your favorite spring creek presenting tiny tricos to tricky trout with the 490-4, or punching streamers into a headwind probing for a lake dwelling lunker with the 7100-4, the powerful blank of the IGNITER will make sure your fly is delivered to the intended target appropriately.
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.

Fast is the name of the game with the IGNITER. Aggressive from the tip to the butt, the IGNITER is designed to punch through even the stiffest cross-winds and deliver your fly in the most technical of conditions.
LONG CASTS & LINE CARRY
Built with maximum stability throughout the blank, the IGNITER allows the angler to go the distance and reach the farthest lying fish, while still maintaining the utmost control and accuracy. A tricky trout that won’t let you get within 50 feet is going to require a fly line with a long head for delicate presentation at distance. The powerful design of the IGNITER allows anglers to effectively carry that length of line to land the smallest of dry flies with delicacy at distance.
Truly the Ferrari of fly rods, the IGNITER is built with the most power in our lineup, throughout the blank, and is capable of delivering your fly, big or small, to the intended target no matter the conditions. Whether it’s a log jam across a wide pool or a tricky bank feeder tucked into the grass on the far bank, the IGNITER is designed to make sure your fly hits its mark.
