Sage 6200 Reel Series

“This is our pinnacle big game and saltwater reel,” says Kurt VanWyck, vice president of product development. “We spent time in the lab and out in the field testing this reel in grueling conditions to ensure anglers who chase big fish all over the world have the toughest reel with the best drag package available.”

In fact regular FlyLife contributor Peter Morse, a Sage ambasador, was closley involved in the field testing. We recently saw the reel run through its paces on some fast running Mack Tuna and solid Queenfish in Hervey Bay, Queensland and the reel performance was impressive.
The 6200 series of reels are fully machined with cold-forged, tempered 6061-T6 aluminum. The rigid frame-to-spool connection offers great strength and the large, concave arbor creates high retrieve rates and larger line capacities. Each model features Sage’s sealed carbon system drag, with a one-revolution drag knob that has 40 detented drag settings for adjustable and repeatable drag resolution.
The series includes five models from 5/6 up to 11/12 in silver, stealth and cobalt finishes, hard anodized for surface protection and corrosion resistance. The unique porting pattern and spoke aesthetic combine for a highly ergonomic reel that will standup to even the strongest fish runs. Available August 2016.
