    A six pack to the first person able to sensibly translate all the technobabble in that Sage media release.

    Yep medicine taken. Drank the Sage Coolaid a bit hard on that one and still getting over the hangover.
    Keep your eyes out for DA’s hands on review in the coming weeks. Morsie will have the first one in Oz.

    New ESN rods have been announced as well –
    (They replace the current ESN)

    "BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. (June 15, 2016)–Legendary fly rod manufacturer Sage is pleased to introduce the new ESN, an all-around European-Style Nymphing rod ideal for small creeks to big rivers.

    “Built with a KonneticHD backbone, the ESN allows anglers to experience unmatched blank recovery, increased sensitivity, reduced weigh-in-hand, and superior shock absorption,” says Peter Knox, R&D design engineer. “Designed with a variety of long and short line techniques and situations in mind, this refined European-Style Nymphing rod allows anglers to confidently work any stretch of river the world over.”

    The black ice blank has garnet thread wraps with metallic charcoal trim wraps. Hard chrome single-foot snake guides and tip top decrease weight. The super plus snub nosed, half-wells cork handle is comfortable in hand, and the stealth black anodized aluminum reel seat is down-locking for perfect balance. Laser etched line weights are easy to read on the slide ban. All models come in a black rod bag and black powder-coated aluminum rod tube for a price of $895. Available August 2016."

    You’ll have to come to the Sage casting day in Benalla on the 1st of July Dave, Morsie should have a 590 X we can have a cast of (if we are lucky).
