Equipped with a high-performance blank (Graphite IIIe), the FOUNDATION has a fast action providing excellent casting power and effortless control. It’s the very foundation of what defines a Sage rod – Performance - taking your game to another level. Whether you are a guide on the Madison or exploring your backyard waters, the FOUNDATION series delivers the signature Sage feel. For over 35 years we’ve built performance rods one at a time on Bainbridge Island, WA. The same 27 sets of skilled hands that craft all Sage rods construct the FOUNDATION.
All Sage rods are covered by replacement warranty for life. At the moment the cost is $175. There is a shipping and handling cost, but any breakage for any reason can be remedied. If the dog ate the handle, or you ran over it - no problem. So long after you have fallen in love with this rod you can be assured it will be with you forever - if you want.
