Sage’s entry level rod, the Approach, is loaded with features you don’t always see at this price point. Constructed in Washington State, USA–like the rest of the Sage line–the Approach features a medium/fast-action and a higher modulus graphite than in any of their previous entry level rods. The Oyster Shell shaft colour is nicely accented with black thread and silver trim wraps. Hard chrome snake guides, aluminum reel seat and a full-wells cork grip complete the package. The Approach is available in line weights from #3 to #9 and in lengths from 7’ to 9’.
