Scorching line speeds and extreme distance capabilities
Slender shaft design reduces overall weight

Widely regarded as one of Sage’s all-time classics, the XP was a rocket of a rod known for its scorching line speeds and extreme distance capabilities. Ever since it was retired several years ago, anglers have been anxiously awaiting the next rod to take its spot. The evolution of the XP is here. The VXP improves upon its predecessor in several areas. The slender shaft design reduces overall weight to a bare minimum, while still maintaining a fast action capable of generating ultrahigh line speeds. The smooth-loading feel makes them even more responsive than the originals. Sage used varying tapers and materials to best match up each line weight with their corresponding duties, from casting dries in a spring creek to two-handed spey casting on a salmon river. Handsome shadetree green shaft color wrapped with dark green, silver and black matches style with performance. Rods include protective tube. Manufacturer’s lifetime warranty.
