    Default Sage Salt

    The Sage Salt recently won “best new saltwater fly rod” at the 2014 IFTD awards and the Sage Accel won “best new freshwater fly rod”.

    I think it might be the new version or the TCX... could be wrong, but the write ups seem to indicate a lot of overlap.

    The salt seems to be replacing the xI3 from what i remember Mike at frontier mentioning.
    I guess it would win best new rod because there is not much else new :-)
