Sage Introduces ONE Spey and Switch Rods

Sage announced yesterday the addition of a collection of two-handed fly rods to its multi-award winning ONE series of rods. The new two-handed ONE collection will be comprised of 14 different spey and switch models, ranging from 4 to 10 weight and priced from $850 to $1025. According to Sage, the rods are "ideal for numerous steelhead and salmon fishing scenarios" -- but with two-handed ONE-series options ranging down to size 4 -- the new spey and switch ONE-series options should please two-handed trout anglers as well.

Sage introduced the ONE series last year, to much fanfare. Sage's ONE fly rods use Konnetic™ technology, which according to Sage, makes them noticeably more accurate and lighter weight with a decidedly thinner profile when compared to traditional rods. The ONE series rods was garnered with much acclaim during the past year, having been voted EFTTEX Best Fly Rod, IFTD Best Freshwater and Saltwater Fly Rod, and being named to Field & Stream’s Best of the Best.

The following table provides the specifics on size, weight and pricing for the 14 new two-handed ONE-series fly rods.
