Sage Spectrum MAX Fly Reel 7/8wt
The SPECTRUM MAX is fully machined with cold forged, tempered 6061-T6 aluminum, housing our proven Sealed Carbon System (SCS) Drag. The MAX features a super rigid frame-to-spool connection, a widened palming rim, a large/vented arbor for high retrieve rate, and our One Revolution Drag Knob with 40 detented drag settings for adjustable and repeatable drag resolution. Finished with our Core Collection’s unique porting pattern and spoke aesthetic, the MAX will be your go-to reel for the full range of heavy duty fishing scenarios.
The Sage Spectrum MAX Reel 7/8 is the workhorse model for steelhead, light saltwater, brown trout, smallmouth or any other species when targeting fish on a 7-8wt fly rod. The buttery smooth drag system on this reel far surpasses any reel on the market at this price range. With 40 detent drag settings you can open spool the reel for a lightweight drag for small fish, while hammering down to detent setting 15 for the Chile, Alaska, or New Zealand fish of a lifetime!
With its smooth engagement and consistent, dependable, and repeatable pressure, Sage's SCS Drag allows you to fish with confidence knowing your tippet is protected. Proprietary high-grade US made carbon easily and repeatedly handles high pressure and quickly dissipates the kinetic energy of that running fish into thermal energy. Tailored configurations allow us to create specific drag systems for each model, size, and fishing application, and the entire system itself is sealed to keep out water, sand, grit, and salt.
