  • As expected

    Always expect great from Sage and I wasn’t disappointed. Color stands out and the finish is outstanding. One knock is that it did not have dots to line up the inserts. Mine does now. Just some white UV nail polish the ladies won’t miss a UV light and small dots that are perfectly lined up and hard as nails.

    Rod is fast and well suited for a double haul with streamer flys. I expect this to perform well in Alaska where it will be tested soon on Coho Salmon. I have only taken this to the back yard so far but a 70 foot cast is pretty easy for this rod.
  • I love the Bolt

    The Sage Bolt is a very fast rod. It's great for wind or big flies. I have three of them.
  • Sage 4, 5, and 7 weight

    I purchased the 7 weight first and fell in love. This rod is a fast action rod that is very light and accurate. Can easily cast all the line on the reel. I am using rio bonefish.
    The 4 and 5 are also perfect if you like a fast action rod.
    I was using orvis recon prior to purchasing all the safe bolts but after using the bolt, I fell in love.
    The bolt is not for someone looking for a slow rod but the rod will deliver your fly with precision and quickly
  • Sage bolt
    Reviewed by Mighty Ox from Colorado on Monday, May 14, 2018
    I took it out yesterday and tested the cast accuracy, it performs well. Its got the back bone to toss a big woolly burgers, also it has the power to punch against the wind to deliver a bug to the fishes. Overall, it's the big bang for the buck. However, I just give it 4 stars because with all that good stuff, sage bolt doesn't have align dots on the joints section.

  • “Read some reviews that said this rod is heavier than expected. I’m a petite woman (5’4” 130#) just getting into fly fishing. Anyone have an opinion as to whether this will be too heavy for me? Looking at the 5wt rod.”

    • I do not think the rod is usually heavy but it is vert fast. If you like a fast rod I would go for it.

    • I just purchased a 5wt rod about a week ago and have not fishing with it yet. I do have the 7wt rod, it's excellent. That's why I bought the 5wt. However, it's came in and just like I expect it, much lighter than the 7wt. Ultra fast action will be great for petit lady and a new fishermen like yourself. It's will help the beginner to cast and set the hook easier.
