If you are looking for a classy reel for your 5 or 6 weight trout rod or your 7 or 8 weight salmon/steelhead rod, give this reel a look. Delivering classic good looks and spot-on design, these reels will earn a spot among your very favorite reels. The full cage design adds a measure of durability and keeps thin running lines from getting snagged during active casting.
Sage Trout Reel – Stealth/Silver
$400.00 – $425.00
The numbering of the reel (either 4/5/6 or 6/7/8) indicates the single hand rod size they are designed for. We find the 4/5/6 is ideal on a 5 or 6 weight rod and the 6/7/8 works well on a 7 or 8 weight rod.
Classic aesthetics with modern performance. Drawing inspiration from the historic Sage 500 series reels, the Modern Classics collection introduces reels designed for the angler longing for a nod to the past. A romantic appeal to designs and colors that reflect a classic feel of old yet packed with performance features that will assure you’ll never lose that fish of a lifetime.
While honoring our heritage with a full-frame design, narrow profile, and classic styling, the backbone of the TROUT reel is our proven One Revolution, Sealed Carbon System (SCS) drag. The heart of the series is the 4/5/6 which will balance perfectly with the majority of all-around trout rods. The larger 6/7/8 is a great option for bigger trout setups or light salmon/steelhead duty.
