Two New Reels From Sage Offer Anglers Affordable Quality
June 13, 2013 (Bainbridge Island, Wash.) – This summer, fly fishing industry leader Sage Manufacturing reveals the 3200 and 2200 series, two new fully-featured fly reel designs offered at prices every angler will appreciate.
The fully machined, durable 3200 series is based on the proven 4200 reel design. These reels include a custom stainless steel clutch bearing inside Sage’s reliable Sealed Carbon System for a drag that performs every time. The large arbor design allows for quick retrievals, and the large, one revolution drag knob ensures the drag is set correctly at a quick glance. Available in three sizes to accommodate 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8 weight lines, 3200 series reels come in two colors including black/platinum and platinum. These reels range from $199 to $239 and will be available at retail stores in August.
Sage’s new, large arbor 2200 reel series are machined die cast aluminum, but thanks to a refined machining process, these reels have exacting tolerances resulting in a more finished look than traditional die cast reels. The reels feature fully machined handles and drag knobs and are highlighted by Sage’s Sealed Carbon System drag technology. Anglers will appreciate the technical design features at an attractive price. Available in line four models for line weights 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 and 9-10. The 7-8 and 9-10 sizes are ideal for Switch and Spey anglers thanks to ample capacity for larger line diameters. 2200 series reels come in black/platinum and black/blaze for a surprising retail price of $129-$159.
