    On the flats, blue water, or anywhere in between, your first shot is always the best shot. But as experienced saltwater anglers know, sometimes that first shot means the bonefish you didn't see until it was right here, and other times it's an upwind bait ball way out there. The Xi3 features SaltH20 Technology Construction that allows you, the angler, to focus on the task at hand and let the rod do the work.


    • Torque Lifting, pulling, picking up 60' of line, powering flies through brisk winds, the Xi3 has the torque to perform in every situation
    • Torsional Resistance - Picking up and re-directing 60' of fly line is something every angler needs to present the fly immediately to moving fish, in any condition. When changing direction with the rod under load, the angler needs the rod to resist torsion and recover from the load quickly. The Xi3 has the torsional resistance to help the rod track straighter than ever before.
    • G5 Construction - Utilizing our proprietary G5 construction, we can precisely place the material for more power in the butt section and more sensitivity in the tip section.
    • Saltwater fast action
    • Pacific-blue shaft color
    • Electra blue trim wraps / cobalt blue primary wraps
    • Fuji hard chrome plated – stripping guides feature Alconite™ ceramic inserts, which offer the utmost durability and linewear resistance; tip-tops and snake guides are oversized on all models for ease of line movement
    • All models have saltwater safe black anodized reel seat, cork and EVA fighting butt, easy-grip, heavy-knurled lock rings and full-wells cork grips
    • Black fabric rod bag with silver silkscreen and powder coated blue aluminum tube with grey silkscreened Sage logo
    • Sage Lifetime Warranty

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 This *is* truly the *works* for salt, 6.4.2012
    Reviewer: Anders V. (Menlo Park, CA)

    I have to agree with every positive statement out there made about this rod, and I have not seen anything less than excellent, ever! I have a 9wt and a 12wt. This is simply the ultimate rod for salt! Period!

    Reviewer: Frank E. (Pleasant Grove, UT)

    As expected, the Sage Xi3 exceeds any/all expectations! Having fished witht the Xi2....it was hard to imagine what else Sage could do to improve on something that has been considered the "de facto" standard in fast salt water fly rods. Well....it is that much faster, lighter and more sensitive than it's predecessor. The thing should have N.A.S.A stamped on the side...'cause it is a literal rocket! Amazingly smooth casting and it loads like nobody's business.Aboslutely no complaints!
