Hoping someone who knows Sage rods can answer whether this rod will work as a Downrigger rod, I have a shot at buying one. Thanks in advance.

Hey Bob!


Anything could be clipped into a downrigger clip. I don't think it would make a good rigger rod however at 9' and stiffer butt section. Nice steelhead stick however or diver rod out the rear?

This is a 3 power 9’ rod. What color is the blank? I have some 490s in brown blanks they are older models. I fish them off downriggers with no problems. They are my kid’s favorite rods. Long enough but not so long they have a hard time controlling them.

The 3 power would probably be fine unless you run into some larger kings.

Thanks for input, I'm going to go for it, it comes with a shimano calcutta reel and a quantum reel as well, both lefties! It's an older brown one, looks like it's barely used. I tied into a king last year that was over 30, my kenai kwik 9'3"was a little light , but got him to the boat. Had to release him as we were in front of Hoquiam in the bay.

It’s not left handed. I’m not sure how you’ll even pick it up.
