SAGE SPECTRUM C 5/6 FLY REEL : 5-6WT
The new Sage Spectrum C Fly Reel is attractive, durable, and powerful. Spectrum C reels feature a proven, completely sealed, carbon fiber disc drag system that is smooth and powerful, with the ability to put the brakes on big species like bass, steelhead, bonefish, and salmon. These lightweight reels are beautifully designed, and offer anglers a tough, durable Sage reel at an entry level price.
Spectrum C reels use next generation, die-cast technology followed by CNC machining to reduce weight and create a unique, attractive frame and spool. These reels are then powder coated with an advanced polymer to create a 'tough as nails' finish that resists scratches, dents, and saltwater corrosion. An oversized, machined, and anodized one-revolution drag knob makes for easy adjustments to the drag, and the fully machined, anodized, ergonomic reel handle improves grip and comfort.
These reels have a large arbor and concave spool which produces fast line pick up, while increasing strength and backing capacity. Spectrum C reels easily convert from left to right hand retrieve and include a Sage embroidered ballistic nylon reel pouch for safe storage. Sage Spectrum C reels are among the best quality to price values on the market and will provide years of flawless performance.

Excellent choice and value at the price point! Drag works well and the finish is spot on. The copper colorway is just hard to beat.

Awesome reel! Paired it with my euro-nymphing rod and this thing is a beast! Worth the money.

I have been playing with a buddies for a while and just couldn't believe how awesome this thing was. I avoided upgrading my first outfit, because I thought I was going to have to take out a second mortgage for a decent reel. FINALLY pulled the trigger on my own, This thing is a budget trouters dream.

Best reel for the money as far as I'm concerned. The line I ordered for it was out of stock so ReelFlyRod upgraded for free! Great reel, great company.

Ordered the Sage Spectrum C 5/6 Reel recently (in black), had it loaded with Airflow Bandit line. Finally got a chance to put it on the water and it performed flawlessly. Paired it with a 9f5w Scott Fast Action rod and it was basically a dream to fish with. The reel is quiet when needing to reel in some line or when needing to strip some line. The numbered drag is awesome, making for adjustments without feeling or thinking. It looks and feels like something I should have paid $500 for. On top of that, its got a sealed drag making it a solid choice of mine for fishing these mountain rivers or heading to the beach. Very impressed with this reel. No doubt about it, most well rounded fishing purchase I've made.

This reel has gone from fishing the Bays and endless shorelines of California Hunting for corvina. To the Trinity river hooking up steelheads and has performed phenomenal.

Let's face it, this is a budget reel. Have it on my Stillwater rod. It may not be flashy, but it performs excellent.
