Sage DART 476

Ultralight performance for casting into the smallest pockets with delicate accuracy, the Sage DART 476-3 is a fun rod for the small waters around Bozeman like the Shields, Boulder, and even Hyalite Creek, yet it has enough backbone to handle those evening risers on the Gallatin and Madison rivers.

SMALL WATER / FAST ACTION 

  • Accurate delivery of small flies
  • Casting in small water and amongst obstructions
  • Light, stealthy presentations 

The small water DART features a short-range
fast action for chasing wary trout in still and
clear water, close quarters, or obstacle-ridden streamsides. Specifically designed to drive precise loops under the branches of a willow while still providing delicate presentations and delightful feedback to the angler. The KonneticHD materials combined with performance-friendly fast action gives fishermen the ultimate competitive advantage against highly selective trout. 

The lightest, most precise casting small water rod ever made, the DART is destined to become a cherished tool in the trout fisherman’s quiver for years to come. 

  • KonneticHD Technology
  • Sapling Green blank color
  • Bronze thread wraps with Gold trim wraps
  • Fuji ceramic stripper guides
  • Ultra-Light hard chromed snake guides and tip-top • Vera wood insert with Bronze anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat.
  • Super Plus snub-nose, half-wells cork handle
  • Tan rod bag with brown logo and model tag
  • Portobello colored powder coated aluminum rod tube with Sage medallion 

GRAPHITE TECHNOLOGY

KonneticHD Technology is the next era in performance graphite rods. Optimizing our graphite-to-resin ratio, we have created a higher density (HD) fiber composite, resulting in lighter, stronger blanks which deliver unmatched recovery, energy transfer, and line/loop control. Building upon proprietary construction techniques developed for Konnetic Technology, KonneticHD gives us an elevated platform to achieve new levels in rod design.

  • New proprietary graphite/resin composite developed through exclusive partnerships.
  • Advanced high density (HD) fiber positioning, enhanced laminate characteristics, and optimized manufacturing techniques increase composite modulus while maintaining durability.
  • KonneticHD creates amplified strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios as needed within the rod blank.
  • Optimized fiber-to-fiber energy transfer along the length of the blank minimizes both lateral and medial vibrations, delivering accuracy in an easy loading blank with quick recovery, a crisp tip stop, and enhanced line feel for complete loop control.
  • The highest energy transferring material we have ever created, opening new doors for our R&D Team to experiment with construction techniques, taper designs, and action profiles.

 

 

THE SAGE LIFETIME WARRANTY

 

Every new Sage rod, blank and Sage series reel is covered by our lifetime, original owner warranty against defects in materials or workmanship.

This warranty is limited to repair and replacement of the rod, blank or reel and does not cover direct, indirect, consequential, incidental or any other type of damage resulting from the use of the product. This warranty does not cover fire, theft, missing rod sections, intentional breakage, modification or customization of the finished rod, or damage during the assembly of a blank into a finished rod. Warranty coverage on Sage blanks does not extend to any custom work or components added to the blanks. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state.

Sage reserves the right to determine whether to repair or replace any Sage Product covered by this warranty and the right to replace any discontinued models with comparable models when necessary.

Colors and components may vary between original and replacement parts.


The lifetime, original owner warranty against defects in materials and workmanship applies to rods with a serial # beginning with the letter "A" and higher, including all double letters (i.e. AA, AB, and AC). Should a breakage occur outside of warranty coverage (when it’s not the result of defects in materials or workmanship) a repair can usually be made for a fee.

One exception to this is the rods manufactured with a serial number Q, R, S or T. These rods carry an unconditional, original owner lifetime warranty.

PLEASE NOTE: Sage blanks are not serialized. Warranty coverage on rods built from Sage blanks is limited to the blank only.

GRAPHITE TECHNOLOGY

GRAPHITE IIIe

Graphite IIIe Technology brings power and durability resulting in a more connected feel throughout the casting stroke, making longer and more accurate casts possible. Constructed using glass scrims within layers of graphite, Graphite IIIe rods are noted for their light weight, dependability, and smooth feel.

  • ​Sage proprietary carbon/resin composite materials.
  • Modulus positioning enhances blank strength and performance along the length of the shaft.
  • Graphite / glass scrim layered construction reduces weight and increases cross-sectional durability and performance.
