The Sage 6200 is new but the drag system is familiar. I have fished Sage’s reels with this drag system for the last 6 years and it has performed flawlessly on big trout, steelhead, bonefish, false albacore, and striped bass. In addition to the classic big game sizes, the new smaller 6250 size is designed for 5/6 lines and will be a great choice for the serious trout angler - Grady
The 6200 series, Sage’s new pinnacle big trout, big game, and saltwater reel, was developed in the lab and tested in the field under grueling conditions to ensure anglers who chase big fish all over the world have the toughest reel with the best drag package available. The 6200 series of reels are fully machined with cold-forged, tempered 6061-T6 aluminum. The rigid frame-to-spool connection offers great strength and the large, concave arbor creates high retrieve rates and larger line capacities. Each model features Sage’s sealed carbon system drag, with a one-revolution drag knob that has 40 drag settings for adjustable and repeatable drag resolution.
