BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. (June 15, 2016)– Sage, the performance fly fishing products manufacturer, introduces the new 6200 reel family.
“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.”
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, the 6200 reel family starts at $439 and tops out at $499.
