Sage may have handcrafted its 4-Piece Accel Fly Rod on Bainbridge Island, here in the USA, but it designed it on water all over the world. In building the Accel, Sage wanted to create a winner, the kind of rod you can count on to haul in the big fish in a variety of conditions, time and time again--man, did it succeed. Sage's Generation 5 design and Konnetic Technology make this medium-fast action rod light and ultra-responsive, allowing you to throw tight loops on big, windy rivers without sacrificing your ability to place delicate presentations on small creeks. It's available in a wide variety of weights and lengths, meaning you're sure to find an Accel to suit your exact needs. Any model you choose has a gorgeous emerald-colored blank, olive green thread wraps with garnet and black trim wraps, and a snub-nose, half-wells cork handle, so it'll look beautiful hanging on your cabin wall during those winter months (though the river's still flowing in January, so you may never want to put it away). Fuji ceramic stripper guides and hard chromed snake guides and tip-top prove that Sage paid attention to every last detail.
