The Spectrum is the core of Sage’s convincing reel lineup. Modeled after the popular 4200 Series, the Spectrum is a true large arbor reel with highly refined feel and appearance. 100% machined for long term durability, the angler may enjoy decades of fishing with these fine reels. At this price, many will couch the Spectrum as a freshwater reel. While the Spectrum Max is ultimately a better reel for saltwater, the Spectrum is perfectly suited to the task and will fish nobly side-by-side with reels twice the price. We can recommend the larger models equally with the smaller models in this series. Sage really nailed the details in the Spectrum. The drag is ultra smooth with excellent range and features numbered detentes on the knob for easy tension setting. The reel comes in four colors which specifically match Sage’s fly rods, not to mention the most popular models from other makers. Your Spectrum reel comes in a high quality neoprene and ballistic nylon case embroidered with the maker’s logo.
