The Sage 8000 fly reel takes saltwater reels to a new level. Built for fighting big saltwater species, the reel comes with a number of advanced features for extra strength and smooth performance. The reel's innovative two step drag system lets you precisely tailor its performance to the type of fish you're fighting, while the strong carbon fiber technology provides extra durability.
Sage 8000 fly reels are designed with a sealed carbon fiber drag system (SCS). This prevents water from affecting the performance of the drag system. The model is highly durable, and capable of dealing with harsh saltwater conditions. It offers smooth performance with the power to deal with big species.
The Sage 8000 comes with two drag controls. The primary control is a single rotation knob with settings from 1-20. The secondary system lets you fine tune the resistance, and has five settings from A to E. Combining these two drag control systems allows for precise alterations at any time.
Other features of the Sage 8000 fly reel include a grooved frame for securing your line and a system for converting between left and right handed retrieve. The reels also have a quick change spool mechanism. Line weights from 7 to 12 are available, and all models are large arbor reels.
Sage 8000 fly reels come with a neoprene and ballistic cloth storage case. The reels are available in either Stealth or Storm color.
