Sage Spectrum Fly Reel



The Sage Spectrum is a mid-priced machined aluminum reel with a solid drag suitable for both fresh and saltwater species. The spool is quickly removed by pressing it away from the frame. The Spectrum LT is a lighter weight reel with a spool release knob to lock the spool in place. 

Modeled after the popular 4200 series, the fully machined SPECTRUM is a true large arbor performance fly reel. With concave spool surface, for optimal line capacity and drag-assisting smoothness, the SPECTRUM is lightweight, extremely durable, and packed with features you’d expect on higher priced reels.

At your request, we will rig this reel with Dacron backing free of charge. If you are purchasing a line and would like us to install both line and backing, let us know and we will have it fully rigged and ready to go. Add a note to your order on the shopping cart page to provide the following information:
  1. Would you like the reel set up for left or right hand retrieve?
  2. What color backing would you prefer? The free options are White, Fluorescent Yellow and Orange.
  3. If you are purchasing a line, would you like us to install it on the reel? If so, we will install the appropriate amount of backing for that line. If we will be installing backing without a line, we will go by the manufacturer’s specifications for the smallest line recommended for that reel. If you would prefer something different, please let us know.
For details on how we rig see the "Rigging" section of our FAQ page.
