    Downsizing my fly rods.
    This rod has been sitting in my tackle closet, is in very good condition, and is just not getting enough use. Now looking for a new home.
    This is a factory rod, clean cork, comes with factory rod tube, warranty card, and sock.

    This is what Sage says about this rod:

    Sage Z-Axis Spey Fly Rod

    We think you will find the Sage Z-Axis Spey Fly Rod is the lightest, longest-casting, most accurate fly rod you have ever thrown. Sage, the world's premier, cutting-edge fly rod manufacturer, went back to the drawing board to create these incredible new Z-Axis Series Fast Action Rods. By improving the entire rod building process, Sage has created a rod that is significantly lighter, stronger and easier to cast for anglers of all skill levels. Through the miracle of Sage Generation 5 (G5) Technology, the Z-Axis has been able to reach previously unattainable levels of line feel, response and performance. These rods are a better fit with todays modern casting style, with the tip strength and progressive power to effortlessly penetrate large flies through the wind.

    Sage Z-Axis Spey Fly Rod Features:

    * Latest Sage Generation 5 Technology: lighter, faster, and stronger!
    * Beautiful, distinctive moss green colored blank
    * Ultra-light, British-made snake guides and stripping guides
    * Nickel silver reel seat with Imbuya wood insert
    * Premium handmade cork handles made from the highest quality Portuguese cork rings
    * Includes premium Sage aluminum rod tube
    * Backed by the Sage Unconditional Lifetime Warranty

    The Science behind the Sage Z-Axis Fly Rod

    Incorporate Generation 5 Technology, utilize new Aligned Fiber Technology, new Modulus Positioning System, then add a Proprietary Resin finish. The best rod design team in the world has utilized a broad new spectrum of technologies together in what they call Generation 5 (G5) Technology. By replacing the glass hoop fibers (the fiberglass center) of the rod blank with lighter, stronger graphite fibers, Sage found that during the baking process the graphite fibers bind together. These now bonded fibers produce a stronger fly rod blank combined with much lighter graphite fibers which produces a feel of near weightlessness. There is a lot more technical talk behind what many call the finest fly rod ever produced. But no amount of talk will prepare you for the sense of awe and wonder when you lay your hands on one for the first time.

    Specifications:

    * Line: 8
    * Length: 13'4"
    * Sections: 4
    * Tube Size: 44 1/2 in
