Hand-made on Bainbridge Island, Washington, Sage rods have been the measuring stick against which all other brands are gauged, both for performance, and workmanship, for quite some time. The Sense offers anglers a Sage quality euro nymphing specific rod at a more approachable price.

Here's what Sage has to say: "The SENSE is designed specifically for the European Style Nymphing angler, with a rod that combines Euro Nymphing specific action, optimized components, and stealthy cosmetics to make the perfect tool for those looking to get the most out of their tight line techniques. Equipped with Generation 5 Technology blank, the action of the SENSE starts with a soft tip for increased effectiveness in working precise nymph rigs and protecting fine tippets, giving greater control of these lighter fishing elements than standard fast action / multi-application rods. Once engaged, the tip absorbs shock and prevents “bounce” that might otherwise break off such fine tippets. Moving down the blank, the soft tip gives way to a stout butt section allowing anglers to fight and control fish with quick hooksets and minimal recoil, keeping the line tight throughout the entire fight, with plenty of backbone to muscle the mightiest of trout to the net.
