Born of the performance of our renowned THERMO big game bluewater reels, the Sage ENFORCER has been updated and fine-tuned for the power, reliability, and durability needs of the saltwater flats angler.
Battles on the flats are exercises in nuance and chaos, so we’ve beefed up the O-rings and drag plates for added durability, consistency, and reliability. Maximum drag has been increased by 50% over the ENFORCER’s predecessor, the SPECTRUM MAX; you’ll find eight pounds at the arbor in the 7/8 size, 15 pounds in the 9/10 size, and 17 pounds at the arbor in the 11/12 size. For saltwater fly anglers fishing heavy tippets who don’t want to let fish run continuously or who care enough about their fingers to avoid palming fast spinning spools this increased drag allows them to get the most out of their reel without sacrificing any metacarpals.
From the first time, an angler stepped onto the flats with a fly rod; it’s been well-known that reels can take a beating in this environment; sand, wind, and salt love nothing more than finding a cosy spot inside a saltwater reel. The ENFORCER is more durable than any of our saltwater flats reels, with larger drag discs to better disperse pressure and maintain the consistency of the power band throughout the fight by stabilizing inherent stopping strength. An all-new reel foot design with radiused corners prevents abrasion to leaders wrapped around the reel foot for storage or in the unfortunate but inevitable moments when the line wraps around the foot in the initial chaos of the hookup.
Take these features the old standbys, the innovations and wrap them up in a burlier and more rigid and rugged cold-forged aluminium frame and you have a reel that will stand up to the drops, knocks, and beatdowns that frequently occur in saltwater fishing situations.
Match this reel with the SAGE SALT R8 FLY ROD for a perfectly balanced setup!
