Charter Special Reel Features
- ARB These stainless steel ball bearings are specially treated to drastically increase the corrosion resistance of the bearing. These bearings will last at least 10 times longer than standard stainless steel ball bearings in high salinity environments.
Sage 8000 Pro Fly Reels are designed for tackling big-game saltwater fish. These fly fishing reels give you a new dimension of fish-stopping power.
Sage 8000 Fly Reels provide an integrated secondary drag control mechanism, allowing you to fine-tune and calibrate your drag.
You can dial in new degrees of fish-fighting resistance for your target species with this unique two-stage drag control. You can also set your preferred line resistance at the drag’s low end to prevent over-stripping as you take line for your cast.
It’s all one smooth and powerful drag system, enhanced with a greater range of resistance settings from the secondary drag control mechanism.
