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 nymphs 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.
Along with the specially designed blank, the SENSE also features components and cosmetics dialed to the application. Single foot guides allow for a lighter more sensitive package, while optimally positioned stripper guide keeps line tighter to the hand and blank, preventing unnecessary snagging and increased control.
Matte black down-locking reel seat delivers an even balance while shifting reel weight further to the rear. Additionally, “Stealth Grey” blank color and tonal cosmetics provide added low glare camo in approaching spooky pools and pockets.
Ranging in models from the traditional 3100-4, the versatile 3106-4, to the big rig 4100-4, the SENSE offers specialized treatment for dialed execution. Performance personified for the technical game of tight line fly fishing.
Very nice rod for and finish is what you would expect from a sage rod!
