Great all around reel that is worth every penny. Smooth drag that sounds great, easy to take apart, solid construction.

Solid reel. Balences my 9'6'' rod really well. The black has paint chipping from being dropped on rocks but it still is holding up well

I bought this reel to match with my new Sage X 6 weight. The reel I was using was too heavy to realize the full benefit of the light weight design of the Sage X. This Spectrum reel is perfect. I haven't used in the field much yet, but will have the opportunity this week. The balance and feel of it combined with this awesome rod are amazing. HAd them load it with a nice line and backing. So easy!

I have the Spectrum in 5/6 and 9/10 and both are well built with smooth drag systems. The 9/10 has been in the salt and landed up to permit and similar sized fish, and have held up really well. They just ooze quality. Have recommended them to many friends.

Set up with a sage rod this is the perfect combo for all around fishing.

This is the Reel!!! Long story, but my husband was given this reel along with his first Sage ( sonic) rod, after 40 years of marriage, and was blown away with the craftsmanship and detail, as well as the performance of the drag! I love it and him!!!

I have had the Sage Spectrum for a year (purchased elsewhere) but is a dream of a reel. Solid, sweet sounding and perfectly balanced with my St. Crouix rod. need to buy some extra spools but wouldn't hesitate to purchase again!

Was so glad to get this spare for my 5 wt. I have a skagit line on one reel (for streamers) and regular line on the other (for dry & nymph), so I can easily switch depending on the river and conditions for the day. Easy to switch from one to the other.

I have fished this reel a lot on a budget 6wt outfit. Drag is great for the price and it even sounds nice. Have had 0 issues with this reel.
