For those ready to build their own fly rod using a Sage blank see below for recommended guide spacing. Using the guide spacing provided ensures that your rod performs just like one of the fly rods that are hand built.



Sage's R&D Department suggests that you keep the guide placement within a ΒΌ inch of the measurement that we provide in order to be consistent with the design and feel of factory-assembled Sage rods. Drastic changes to guide size and placement can affect the overall performance of the blank. Below are some tips that will help you assemble your rod to our specifications:
  • The white dots on each section indicate the straightest axis of the blank; we recommend aligning each section, dot to dot then place the guides on the dotted line
  • Assemble the blank and lay flat on a large table or floor with the tip top guide attached
  • Measure from the top of the tip top wire down the length to the butt section and mark each measurement with a felt tip pen or marker
  • Place the bottom foot, foot closest to butt, on the measurement for best placement accuracy
  • The "t" at the end of a guide size stands for thin wire or light wire guide - examples: 1/0t or 1t
  • Guide sizes are for double foot snake guides. For single foot guides, we recommend going up 2 sizes.
    These are Sage's recommendations, but as a custom rod builder you, of course, have the ability to move the guides around as you choose.
ESN Rod Description
Our new ESN was designed specifically for Europeanstyle nymphing techniques developed to maximize catch rates. Built with a KonneticHD backbone, the ESN allows anglers to experience unmatched blank recovery, increased sensitivity, reduced weight-in-hand, and superior shock absorption to better hold fish.

The refined medium action has been designed with a variety of long and short line techniques and situations in mind, allowing you to confidently work any stretch of river. From small creeks to big rivers, the ESN is as dynamic as the water.
