Sage Click Reel
The new Sage Click Reel is a performance and cosmetic upgrade from the original Click series. The enhanced Click features larger arbour diameters. This creates a larger palming area for fighting fish. It also provides quicker line retrieval while maintaining backing capacities. The Click aesthetic has been elevated through new hole patterns. The refreshed, modern design speaks to its lightweight and minimalist yet functional characteristics. The proven performance of the adjustable click and pawl drag design of the original is featured in this new Click reel series.
The Sage Click Reel are the perfect complement to that treasured split bamboo rod. Or to the most advanced lightweight small stream rods, such as the Sage Circa, Mod or Little One Fly Rods.
The ultra-light Click Reels combine consistent performance with modern design at barely over 2 oz. These are perfect for when a traditional drag system is just an unnecessary weight. Click Series Reels feature a smooth new gear system and clicker system to cushion delicate tippets and prevent overruns. Minimalists everywhere will appreciate the stealthy anti-glare bronze finish and clean lines.
Click and Pawl Drag System
The Click reels come with an adjustable click and pawl drag system that is easily converted from right hand to left hand retrieve. The advantage of this kind of drag system is simplicity, reliability, and fly fishing fun. The fact that the drag system in the Click Reel is adjustable is also somewhat unique. A lot of click and pawl drag systems are adjustable, but on most of them, the increased resistance is in effect for both directions. The drag in the Sage Click Series can be tightened without affecting the forward reeling resistance, making it more possible to pick line up quickly and actually play hard-fighting fish on the reel.
The next important feature of the Sage Click Reels is its true, large arbour spool. Most ultralight, click and pawl style reels have outdated, small arbour spool dimensions. Small arbour spools can coil line too tightly and add unwanted memory, which makes stealthy presentations almost impossible. They also do not pick line up very quickly, which makes fighting fish more difficult. Even in small water and with ultralight tackle, the benefits of a large arbour spool are hard to ignore. Zero line memory and fast line pickup mean more fish in the net. Especially when the water is clear and the fishing gets technical.
The vast majority of click and pawl style fly reels on the market are cast aluminium or even plastic. Some reels are affordable for the beginning fly fisher. However, performance features like durability, drag function, and aesthetics are not a priority. However, the Click Series Reels are lightweight, heavy-duty 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminium that will not break or bend. Not even when used heavily in harsh conditions. Their hard-anodized finish resists scratches and corrosion. It comes in a beautiful bronze or stealth black colour that pairs nicely with any fly rod.
The Sage Click Series Reels are the perfect choice for anglers who want performance, durability, and aesthetics. And it’s all wrapped up in a simple, ultralight package. Choose the Sage Click if you are looking for light lines, tiny dry flies, high mountain streams, and native cutthroat. Do you need a rod to go with your Click Reel? Then consider the Sage TXL-F and the Sage Circa.
