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.

Strong as reels I paid three times as much for. Light yet strong enough to hold up when I treat it like a cheap reel. Bought two extra spools and use it for everything.

I love this reel! You cannot best sage. Even though this is one of their cheaper reels, it performs better than any other reel I’ve had. It’s really smooth in any application I use it, fresh and saltwater.

This is my second Sage reel and will target trout on my 9' 5wt rod. I used my ReelCash points which made this a really great deal for a good quality reel.

I purchased this reel to pair with my echo fly rod, this setup would be my first kit and boy am I glad I went with the Sage Spectrum series reel. The drag on this works perfectly and really does its job well, the actual spinning is buttery smoothe! Very pleased with this and plan to purchase a Spectrum Max for my first salmon reel this fall.

Super smooth and feels very well put together. The numbered drags is also very nice. Love it so far!

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.
