Old school vibes and modern performance... this thing is like an 80's FJ souped-up by Icon. I have a couple of them and love the full cage frame, vintage aesthetics, and buttery smooth drag this reel offers.
Classic aesthetics with modern performance. Drawing inspiration from the historic Sage 500 series reels, the Modern Classics collection introduces reels designed for the angler longing for a nod to the past. A romantic appeal to designs and colors that reflect a classic feel of old yet packed with performance features that will assure you’ll never lose that fish of a lifetime. While honoring our heritage with a full-frame design, narrow profile, and classic styling, the backbone of the TROUT reel is our proven One Revolution, Sealed Carbon System (SCS) drag. The heart of the series is the 4/5/6 which will balance perfectly with the majority of all-around trout rods. The 2/3/4 is ideal for small trout rods and the larger 6/7/8 is a great option for bigger trout setups or light salmon/steelhead duty. Classic – now with smoother, more consistent, and reliable performance.
