Mark Bachmann, Loreto, Mexico, Roosterfish. The rod: Sage 1190-4 Xi3. 
We've used a lot of rods in the salt. Our adventures cover the gambit from tiny bonefish to behemoth marlins. Sage rods give maximum performance with unequaled reliability. We even have a pair of Sage 1090-3 RPLX rods that have been long since retired, but are cherished for their pleasant memories and will never be sold. I feel the same about the Xi2 rods that replaced them. Xi2 was lighter and more responsive than RPLX. Xi2 produced more line speed with less casting fatigue. Xi3 is a quantum leap over any saltwater fly rods ever produced. The blanks are noticeably lighter in weight, yet stronger and more resilient. Our prediction is that the new longer handles on the 11 thru 16 weight rods will be copied by other manufacturers. But, what's new; Sage has always built the most copied rods on the market.

Why Xi3 ???
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.

Introducing the new Xi3 Series saltwater fly rods. Through Sage's 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’s unique layer interface and proprietary resin also combine for maximum strength—even in high heat environments—and with 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's 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.

Xi3 Features:
  • Saltwater fast action
  • Proprietary taper design utilizing SaltH2O Technology
  • Pacific-blue shaft color & thread wraps with blue metalic accents
  • Premium quality over-size guides
  • Saltwater safe components
  • Extension butts on all models
  • Black fabric rod bag with distinctive silver silk screening
  • Powder coated blue aluminum screw top rod case
