Spectrum LT Lightweight Features
Multi-purpose reels built to cover the entire range of fly fishing applications from Brook trout to Tarpon. Every reel utilizes Sage’s exclusive SCS Drag package tuned per size to match fishing application. One revolution drag knob featured throughout the series allows for ease of adjustment and reliable, consistent, repeatable drag pressure. Just select desired weight and feature set for your application.
The SPECTRUM LT reel offering brings a sophisticated, high-performance drag system to an ultra light rigid frame. The One Revolution Drag Knob offers quick and precise drag settings and provides the kind of power and smoothness you’d expect from a large traditional drag system, only without the bulk or weight. Available in a range of sizes from 3/4 to 9/10, there's sure to be a perfect size for any application where strong lightweight features are desired.
With its smooth engagement and consistent, dependable, and repeatable pressure, our SCS Drag allows you to fish with confidence knowing your tippet is protected. Proprietary high-grade US made carbon easily and repeatedly handles high pressure and quickly dissipates the kinetic energy of that running fish into thermal energy. Tailored configurations allow us to create specific drag systems for each model, size, and fishing application, and the entire system itself is sealed to keep out water, sand, grit, and salt.
Our drags discs are made with proprietary, high-grade US made carbon, the same material used in the brakes of jets and F1 race cars. We utilize carbon drag systems because we recognize it is the most efficient material for dissipating extreme heat without wear. Unlike alternative drag components such as cork or plastic, or even polymers like Delrin® and Rulon®, carbon does not compress, deteriorate, melt, or burn. It allows us to create compact drag systems that are high performance, stable, durable, and repeatable.
Numbered settings, detents, and audible clicks help you take the guesswork out of setting your preferred control level. Our SCS Drag is hand-calibrated for precision and consistency, allowing for repeatable settings and confidence in your adjustments. The easy switch between decreased tension for stripping and increased pressure for fighting fish makes for more time fishing and less time setting drag.
