Sage Maverick 9-weight 9' 0" 4-piece fly rod


Sage Maverick 990-4 Fly Rod

In saltwater angling the quicker you can lay the fly down, the better the results. The Sage MAVERICK is designed to maximize quick-shot opportunities with a powerful tip section that drives the casting load down to more robust lower sections, making it easier to fire quick efficient casts. With a true saltwater-specific backbone and design, the MAVERICK is Sage's latest great cast for the Saltwater angler mindful of one's budget.

    Angler's Lane Combos - Comparison of Fly Reels

    Silver Level - Saltwater Strength

    Orvis Hydros

    Orvis Hydros

    Improvement on great-selling Hydros SL

    • Refined, lighter weight large arbor fly reel
    • Improved fully-sealed drag clutch bearing
    • Fully sealed drag-clutch bearing
    • Radiused reel foot for kink-free leader protection
    • Ergonomically designed asymmetric drag knob
    • Zero start-up inertia
    • Excellent retrieval rates and less line coiling

    Angler's Lane Commentary:
    Excellent value packed into a machined bar stock reel starting under $200. Quickly emerged as a favorite among our guides for value.

    Lamson Guru S

    • Fully machined from bar stock aluminum
    • Signature arm-style element on the frame combines with open spokes to maximize structural strength and minimize weight.
    • Large arbor design for maximum line capacity and fast retrieval to get fish on reel
    • Shares identical drag design and components with our most expensive reels
    • Saltwater-proof, durable, scratch-resistant, hard-type 2 anodized finish
    • Corrosion resistant, low maintenance, stainless-steel fly reel gearing
    • Fly reel is easily switched from right to left-hand retrieve
    • Easy-to-grab center-line drag knob.
    • Manufactured in Boise ID

    Angler's Lane Commentary:
    Phenomenal reel for saltwater and freshwater alike. Outstanding value. Real workhorse.


    Lamson Centerfire

    Lamson Centerfire
    • Lamson's proprietary IPX8 waterproof-rated Cobalt drag system second to none for smoothness and consistency in retrieve performance
    • Burly Power Arm construction and load path reinforcement
    • Precision machined 100% aerospace bar stock aluminum and stainless steel construction for maximum strength and corrosion protection
    • Completely sealed drag mechanism
    • Simple retrieve direction conversion
    • Tightest drag setting is really tight: useful if you need to break line or reel in a really heavy fish off the bottom of the Ocean. Caution--set it this tight and you may go in first
    • Extremely light reel

    Angler's Lane Commentary:
    Lamson has produced many powerful, saltwater reels. The Centerfire represents an outstanding value with components and construction on par with $1000+ reels at a significant savings.
