Advanced technology, innovative design and serious performance. In short, the mid-level reels from Sage are built to excel on the water and outclass the competition in every aspect. These reels are state of the art & super lightweight with fully sealed drag systems.....at an exceptional value.
The new 4200 series comes from the mind of Sage's resident rocket scientist. The 4200 series is machined from solid aircraft grade aluminum and features their fully sealed SCS Floating Tripod drag unit for smooth, maintenance-free performance. A precisely calibrated, one-revolution drag knob allows the quick, reliable adjustments you need to play with the big boys.
* This is the 4260 reel which is rated for 6-7 wt lines and will hold 175 yards of 20lb backing with a 6wt. The reel weighs 4 1/2 ounces. Available here in stealth or bronze.
The Floating Tripod Drag is one of the more unique configurations of Sage's Sealed Carbon System and stands by itself in the field. The Floating Tripod consists of a carbon disk riding on stainless steel rotors supported by a triangle of three smaller carbon disks. Like the three legs of a stool, the system is perfectly balanced and incredibly low weight providing smooth resistance through it's full range of settings. As with all of the SCS configurations the Floating Tripod is sealed and impervious to outside elements such as sand, grit and salt, requiring no maintenance beyond simple rinsing.
