Sage Accel Fly Rod Review / Trident Fly Fishing

Sage Accel Fly Rod Review / Trident Fly Fishing | All about Fly Fishing | Scoop.it
Sage’s 2nd most popular rod introduction for 2015 is the all new Accel. The Accel replaces the VXP in Sage’s lineup and is built with Gen 5 technology, just like the old, but still popular, Z-Axis. It’s also green, like the Z-Axis. Since this is the year of re-packaged rods (check out our review on the Winston Nexus), is the Accel a re-packaged Z-Axis?

We got to try the 590-4 Sage Accel at iCast and decide for ourselves.

Sage Salt Fly Rod Review / Trident Fly Fishing

Sage Salt Fly Rod Review / Trident Fly Fishing | All about Fly Fishing | Scoop.it
The new Sage SALT Fly Rod is, of course, Sage’s latest and greatest. It replaces the still-good-in-its-own-right, Xi3. It’s always a tall order to replace a rod that people like. Luckily, Jerry Siem had something to fall back on – Konnetic Technology. What is it? Probably some new resin, but I’m no material scientist. What I do know is that it’s produced some pretty great rods so far.

Calling a fly rod “Salt” is bold. Read on to see if it lives up to it.

2014 5-weight Shootout: Fly Rod Review and Test / Trident Fly Fishing

2014 5-weight Shootout: Fly Rod Review and Test / Trident Fly Fishing | All about Fly Fishing | Scoop.it
Following the success of our 8-weight reel challenge, we wanted to take on fly rods. Magazines, fly shops, bloggers… virtually everyone has an opinion on which fly rod is best. So, we decided to join the crowd. But, in typical Trident fashion, we’re going to take a different twist on the traditional fly rod review. As always, this shootout will be completely data driven, and we’re going to give you better and more objective results than you’ve seen anywhere else.

Here’s what we did differently....

Winston Nexus Fly Rod Review / Trident Fly Fishing

Winston Nexus Fly Rod Review / Trident Fly Fishing | All about Fly Fishing | Scoop.it
One of the most intriguing new rods for 2015 is the Winston Nexus. Winston discontinued all of their overseas-made rods this year, which included the very popular Passport and VSL, and replaced them with a made-in-the-USA rod at a very attractive price.

We got a chance to cast the 9’ 5-weight Nexus this year at iCast.

Clarifying the new G. Loomis Warranty / Trident Fly Fishing

Clarifying the new G. Loomis Warranty / Trident Fly Fishing | All about Fly Fishing | Scoop.it
Loomis has always made a fantastic rod, but they’ve been lambasted in the internet for their warranty. For those of you who read the Midcurrent article, it was clear as mud. As was their press release. So, we’ve understandably gotten a lot of questions about this, and wanted to clarify it for our customers.
