The little brother to the Sage Spey Reel, the Trout Spey comes in two sizes and is perfectly suited to match up with your trout Spey rod or 3 – 6 weight switch rod. 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 Spey Reels – Stealth/Silver
The numbering of the reel (either 1/2/3 or 3/4/5) indicates the Trout Spey Rod size they are designed for. In terms of a switch rod, the 1/2/3 will handle a 3 weight switch rod. The 3/4/5 works well on a 4, 5 or 6 weight switch 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.
The TROUT SPEY reel features our proven One Revolution, Sealed Carbon System (SCS) drag, while encompassing a full-frame design to assure thing running lines do not migrate between the spool and frame during dynamic casting motions. Similarly styled to the SPEY Reel, The TROUT SPEY has a larger width for increased shooting head capacity and greater weight to help better balance Trout Spey rods. In the 1/2/3 you have a reel perfectly suited to ultra-light Trout Spey applications or the angler looking for a lighter weight solution for their 3wt. The 3/4/5 offers a heavier solution for the 3wt or a nice match to a 4wt or 5wt Trout Spey rod.
Classic – now with smoother, more consistent, and reliable performance.
