How do you improve the most versatile series Sage has ever offered? By making every rod significantly lighter, smoother and more responsive. The VXP combines the VT2 rod versatility with the performance and power of our renowned XP rod Series. The result? An exceptionally light, lively fly rod that generates high line speed for easy distance and wind penetration. In keeping with the versatility theme, each VXP is built with a specific taper to meet the particular performance needs of each line weight. For example, the light, graceful 3-weights feature a smooth, progressive action to help make delicate presentations and cushion fragile tippets. On the other hand, the 9-and 10-weights come with a faster taper and more backbone to deal with big flies, heavy tips and tough fish. In between, you will find two versions of each 6-weight rod one for freshwater and one for salt. In other words, the new VXP lineup has the perfect action for every situation. But they all share one important feature that is a price that makes them a great value in every line weight.
