Sage 4280 Fly Fishing Reel
4280 Fly Fishing Reel is built to excel on the water and outclass the competition in every aspect. Part of the Sage 4200 series, the 4280 reel is one of the greatest values in the high-end reel market thanks to an abundance of features for worry-free performance. Boasting a fully machined anodized 6061 T6 aluminum body, the 4280 Fly Reel is not only lightweight but incredible durable and corrosion resistant. The Sage 4280 Fly Fishing Reel’s 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. But we all know it’s what’s behind the drag knob that makes all the difference. The rocket scientists at Sage equipped the 4280 with a Floating Tripod Drag. This drag system design is one of the more unique configurations of Sage’s Sealed Carbon System drag technologies, and stands by itself in the field. The Floating Tripod drag consists of a carbon disk riding on a stainless steel rotor supported by a triangle of three smaller carbon disks. Like the three legs of a stool, the system is perfectly balanced and incredibly low weight, providing smooth resistance through its full range of settings. A numbered one-revolution drag knob offers the benefit of quick and precise drag adjustments. As with every reel from Sage, the Floating Tripod is sealed and impervious to outside elements such as sand, grit and salt, requiring no maintenance beyond simple rinsing. The Sage 4280 Series reel also features a large-arbor design for faster line retrieve, more consistent drag and reduced line coiling. On a traditional small-arbor reel, the drag increases as the diameter of the line on the spool decreases. This increased drag can sometimes break off fish or snap light tippets. Not on this bad boy! Since the diameter of the Sage 4280 Series Fly Fishing Reel does not change significantly when line is removed from a large-arbor reel, accordingly the drag does not change significantly. Slack lines loose fish, but this design helps keep the slack out when you get a jumper. At just 6 1/8oz., it's easy to cast all day long and its large arbor increases line pick up when reeling in that big fish of a lifetime! The Large capacity if the Sage 4280 Fly reel lets you spool up 200 yds of 20 lb backing and takes 7 to 8 weight line for all you medium fly casters out there. Precisely calibrated and built for a lifetime, the Sage 4280 Fly Reel delivers top shelf fish fighting performance at a price that just can’t be beat.
