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 did not see until it was right here, and other times it is an upwind bait ball way out there.
Introducing the new Xi3 Series saltwater fly rods. Through our exclusive SaltH2O Technology, Xi3 rods provide a groundbreaking level of torque and torsion resistance for superior tracking and less wasted energy at all distances. SaltH2O has a unique layer interface and proprietary resin also combine for maximum strength even in high heat environment and significantly less weight.
This increased strength comes in handy when you need to lean on powerful saltwater bruisers. Just as importantly, it gives you the backbone to pick up 60 or 70 feet of line on desperate second (and last) chance casts.
Sage G5 construction adds improved line feel for easier, more intuitive casting, and specialized saltwater-specific components complete the package. In other words, the new Xi3 is everything you need to make that first shot count.
I rigged this rod up with a Sage 6080 and landed more bonefish and trevally on Kiritimati than I knew what to do with. This is one tough rod.
