EFTTEX Awards 2012 - Best New Fly Reel

Sage 8000 PRO Reel Series

Built upon the proven foundation of the Sage 6000 reel series, the all new and larger 8000 PRO is designed for big-game saltwater species.

Sage says the 8000 PRO gives the angler a new dimension in fish stopping power via an integrated secondary drag control mechanism to fine tune and calibrate the drag setting.

It adds: “The unique two-stage drag control allows the angler to dial up new degrees of fish-fighting resistance at the high end.

“Simultaneously, the angler can set the preferred line resistance at the drag’s low end to prevent over stripping when removing line for the cast. The drag is exceedingly smooth yet powerful, with a greater range of resistance settings provided by the secondary drag control mechanism.

Features include:

  • Sealed carbon fibre drags (SCS)
  • Primary, single rotation drag knob
  • Secondary drag control mechanism
  • Quick change spool mechanism
  • Broad concave palming rim for elective fingertip control
  • Easy conversion from left-to-right-hand retrieve
  • Grooved in-frame line keeper
  • Neroprene reel case

The new 8000 PRO reels will be available in three different sizes: 8080 PRO – Lines 7-8; 8010 PRO – Lines 9-10; 8012 PRO – Lines 11-12.

Colours: Storm or Stealth.
