    Find your pulse with this solid, fast action fly rod.

    New to the Sage lineup, the Pulse Fly Rod is designed and built to be the go-to workhorse of most anglers with all the solid componentry you'd expect to find on a Sage with a price tag that won't eat into your travel budget for the upcoming fly fishing season. Like most Sage rods, the Pulse is handcrafted in Bainbridge Island, Washington and is made with a Graphite IIIe material, which is constructed with glass scrims within layers of graphite. What does that mean to you? It means the Pulse has a fast action casting feel, is lightweight, and is strong enough to turn the toughest fish you can hook.

    Sage has made the Pulse available in a wide range of weights and handle options to best suit the wide range of needs of anglers. Freshwater models range in weights from three to seven weights with three to six weights featuring a snub-nose, half wells cork handle with a rosewood spacer and up-locking reel seat. Six to seven weight options are available with a full wells handle, fighting butt, and anodized spacer and up-locking reel seat. All options come in a new lichen color with olive tread wraps and a black trim. The Pulse replaces the Response in Sage's lineup and has a moderate tip flex that is able to make long casts with ease, quickly turn over flies, and even push through headwinds when the afternoon brings obnoxious head winds.

    Top performer

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Sage produces what I personally think to be the best products on the market. However, with that comes a punch to the gut in terms of price. Not wanting to spend $800 on a fly rod, I made the decision to go with the Pulse. I have been pleasantly surprised. I purchased the 9ft 6in, 5 weight to serve as my every day/all around go to fly rod. I’ve fished with this rod on the Provo River (UT), Green River (UT), and also the Madison (MT) using all styles of presentation. Dries, nymphs, and streamers…this rod performs well for them all. This rod also will roll cast effortlessly. Great rod for the price. I wish the action was a bit faster, but other than that I have no complaints. And no, it’s not the Sage ONE, but it’s also half the price.

    Workhorse of a rod!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this rod with the intention of fishing dry flies on the Provo River. I've been amazed by its outstanding performance on both small streams and large rivers. Extremely responsive, accurate, and powerful. It truly has been a rod for every occasion. I would highly recommend it as a more than capable rod for a price that won't break the bank.
