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.

Phenomenal reel for saltwater and freshwater alike. Outstanding value. Real workhorse.

 

Sage Spectrum Max

Sage Spectrum Max
  • Stacked disc drag mechanism is second to none for smoothness and consistency in retrieve performance
  • Rulon and Stainless Steel drag discs combine to enable you to stop large fish, also provide wide operating range of drag settings
  • 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
  • Choice of finishes--black--or Silver with choice of internal disc colors
  • 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:
Founded in 2003, Hatch took market by storm few years later. Favorite among many guides; we use them and love them. Second to none in performance and consistency. Excellent stopping power. If you can swing a Hatch then buy it--you'll love this reel!
