  1. 990-4 X: All X Series saltwater models offer greater castability than comparable ONE and Method models. The 990-4X is no exception, but I found this rod to be merely workmanlike, rather than truly special. The angler who seeks a light and powerful 9-weight will not be disappointed, but there are other rods in this series that offer something truly unique within Sage’s impressive lineup of heavy line weight fly rods.

    Lines: Rio Bonefish, Rio Permit, SA Bonefish, SA and Rio Redfish lines, SA Sonar Intermediate Saltwater lines, all SA and Rio striper lines

  2. I cast this rod with the Rio Bonefish WF9F, it was a great match if you wanted the rod to cast very tight fast loops off the tip of the rod. I would suggest the Rio Permit WF9F on this rod as my number one. This rod cast very well, was noticeably more powerful than the 8 and less powerful than the 10. I felt like it was more similar to the 1090 X than the 890 X. Long distance shots were easy and predictable, think about that tailing fish at 75 feet into the wind on the dinner plate. This is that kind of fly rod, a very well made 9 weight and more of a permit 9 than a heavy bonefish 9. I like the SALT 990 with the Rio Permit line as my favorite Sage 9 weight.
