The Sage 6000 Series is a line of saltwater fly fishing reels displaying high quality components and performance for saltwater fly fishing applications. The 6000 fly reel series, from Sage, was built around their exclusive SCS drag system that creates a silky smooth resistance while efficiently dissipating heat. It does all this with a minimum of weight, allowing fishermen more line feel and the ability to make more casts without fatigue. This sealed system is impervious to water, sand and grit, requiring no maintenance beyond simple rinsing. Utilizing state-of-the-art manufacturing, the Sage 6000 Series reel is designed with a commitment to quality and performance that is a hallmark of all Sage products. Strong yet lightweight, the Sage 6000 Series reels are made from aerospace-grade aluminum. The reels feature a fully sealed carbon fiber disc drag system and numbered repeatable adjustment for consistent operation in all conditions and a unique and secure quick-release spool mechanism for easy spool changes. The 6000 Series reels feature a curved large-arbor design for maximum line capacity, faster line retrieve, more consistent drag and reduced line coiling. This design also adds strength and rigidity while reducing weight. On a traditional small-arbor reel, the drag increases as the diameter of the line on the spool decreases. This increased drag can sometimes break off fish or snap light tippets. Since the diameter does not change significantly when line is removed from a large-arbor reel, accordingly the drag does not change significantly. The one revolution drag knob enables quick, accurate setting whether it is decreasing drag for stripping or increasing pressure for fighting fish. We offer a single size of the Sage 6000 Series Fly Reels: 6080 in the "Storm" color, for more detailed information on this reel please check out the reel spec chart below.
