Sage 6000 Series saltwater reels
Sage 6010 Reel , Azure
This flagship of Sage Reel lineup is what we believe to be the pinnacle of contemporary fly reel design. Built around an exclusive sealed multi-graphite disk drag unit, 6000 Series reels resist salt, grit and dunkings to deliver buttery-smooth performance under tough conditions. Big fish and high drag settings? No problem. Just twist the numbered, one-revolution drag knob, strip out line, then return to the exact setting you’ve tested for consistent, reliable resistance levels. What the 6000 Series offers what may be the best spool latch system of all time. Each 6000 is easy tochange right to left hand drive. These reels are built sports car smooth and tank tough. A perfect reel
design to fit every need. I have fished a Sage 6010 reel for three years, and it has landed marlin, sailfish, roosters, dorado, tarpon, Chinooks and a lot of steelhead. It has never been cleaned, is all original, and works perfectly. This reel has worked for a 10, 11, 12 weight saltwater reel and a 6, 7, 8 Spey reel. It has survived 300 yard blistering runs by striped marlin and been dunked repeatedly while spey fishing. The performance has been flawless. Matter of fact it may be the single most proven reel I have ever owned.

Heart of The Beast
Sage is well known for creating the world’s finest fly rods. In 2001 they began work on reels designed to match that level of perfection. These reels would be built around an innovative new drag technology called the “Sealed Carbon System” or SCS. This extremely lightweight, easy to use and maintenance free drag system came about through decades of worldwide fly fishing experience fused with innovative aerospace engineering and cutting edge materials. SCS is a fully sealed system using precision-engineered carbon and stainless steel
components to create silky smooth resistance while efficiently dissipating heat. It does all this with a minimum of weight, allowing fishermen more line feel and the ability to make more casts without fatigue. Perhaps best of all, this sealed system is impervious to water, sand and grit, requiring no maintenance beyond simple rinsing. Sage SCS is used in the fully encapsulated "Cassette"
(9-washer) drag used in all Sage 6000 Series reels. While its advantages are easy enough to appreciate over the glass case in a fly shop, they become completely game changing while fishing, helping anglers fish longer, cast better, and ultimately bring more fish to hand.
Why Carbon Fiber?
Carbon can withstand high pressure and temperature, which is what makes it so popular in aerospace and racing applications. High compression strength (maximum stress a material can withstand before deforming) is perfect for a reel drag material, because it allows you to create a very small drag package. With Carbon even a small drag can handle serious pressure and offer exceptionally smooth braking performance - even in those situations when you need to throw the hammer down and control that hard charging fish of a lifetime. Carbon is also a superior material for withstanding and dissipating extreme heat. The kind of heat that is generated from the friction between braking materials. Think race cars using brakes to bleed off speed on the track. Now think of fisherman trying to bleed off the speed of a hard charging downstream running fish. Different game, but the same need for light predictable performance. In fact, the properties of Carbon are the reason Sage can offer their one revolution drag knob, which provides the ability to quickly and accurately apply various drag loads. This allows the fisherman to more effectively respond to dynamic fishing environments. Lastly, Carbon’s stability and Sage's sealed drag assemblies allow you to have a consistent performing drag package whether you are steelheading on the Bulkley with iced up guides, or hooking up to that acrobatic Tarpon in the heat of Belize. Same reliable and predictable drag - any time any place.
