Details

A high-quality rod that won't milk you dry.

Sage knows that, although you demand quality and craftsmanship, you're ready to pass on rods with shock-inducing price tags ... especially in today's economy. For that reason, they designed the Sage VXP Series 4-Piece Fly Rod to meet both your premium-level casting desires without totally gutting your budget.
  • Fast action taper allows for highly accurate casts and makes the VXP extremely sensitive
  • Taper design also provides fast, forgiving, and intuitive casting performance
  • Carbon composite components and slender shaft design reduces the rod's overall weight and provides a smoother feel and greater response
  • Pleasing aesthetics, components, and hard chromed snake guides make for one sexy, lightweight rod
  • Handle A (reversed half wells) has a larger front end that provides better grip for larger hands
  • Handle B (full-wells handle with fighting butt) provides hand support at the rear and front of the rod, gives you more leverage, and allows you to cast longer and fight larger fish
  • Green ballistic case with Silver Sage logo protects the VXP during storage and transport
  • Item #SAG0012

Bang for your buck!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My initial impressions of this rod are nothing but positive. I have this in the 5 weight 9ft size and it works very well for streamer fishing. The action on the rod allows you to throw lots of line accurately. The rod is quite light weight considering this is not a top end rod from Sage. This is a great all around rod if you need a rod to do it all. Sure it is not quite as good at throwing small dries but that is the price you pay to have a rod that can do it all. The 5 weight still will present a dry well but not quite as well as some other rods on the market. If you love streamer fishing but don't want to spend the cash for the Sage One or Method I would recommend this rod for you. I must agree that the tube that comes with this rod is not the best quality but it works. With the money you save by buying this rod you can always kick down for a nicer tube. I have been pairing this rod with a the Lamson Guru reel type 2 diameter 2. The reel and rod combo work well for middle size rivers and streams. For the price that combo is hard to beat.

100+ days: Sage VXP 9'6" 6 Weight

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have abused this rod for the last two years without issue.

3.5 oz and 31.5 tube size provide a very light, accurate rod capable of throwing large streamers and any rig in between. The VXP provides ultra high line speed for a very smooth and accurate cast. Definitely a great rod for someone getting into fishing and/or needing a stronger rod w/out dropping an addt $200 for a One or The Method. A little more performance out of the higher end Sage rods, but the VXP hangs pretty tight.



Outside of Sage, a Winston GVX is pretty comparable (price) but the VXP plays to the beginner a little better.



I have paired with multiple reels, but stuck with RIO Gold and like the line speed and tighter loop emphasis. This rod has no issue loading line and love it for meaty streamers, long/deep nymphing rigs and hopper/dropper combo's. I have used for smaller dries when an unexpected hatch sprung up, but definitely not ideal for a soft presentation.



This has become my go to rod in the boat or on any larger Western river due to its action and price. If you are looking to get into a larger rod with great speed and lower weight, I would recommend the VXP over more expensive options.



Cons: replace the crappy tube for a stronger/more reliable tube for transport, boat, storage, etc.



Solid all-around trout rod

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have the 9 ft 5 wt and have been impressed w/ the casting power and accuracy. Even though this is one of Sage's more affordable rods, I think the quality is still up there w/ their premium rods. Feels great in the hand!

Sage VXP

    The VXP is an exceptional multi-use fly rod for the price. The 6 weight handles all nymphing rigs, large/huge dries and streamers. The action is fast and accurate. This rod handles wind and large flies and is perfect for larger western rivers (Green, Madison, Snake, Henry's Fork). Given the price, it will be tough to beat.

    Downside: the case, not Sage's typical metal tube; but for the price - no complaints.
