Along with the two new rod families that Sage announced last week, the company also outed its new DOMAIN reel series which is designed specifically with two handed rods in mind. According to Sage, the DOMAIN series' full frame construction marries classic design concepts with modern technology to offer switch and spey anglers the best of both worlds.
The reels feature quality hallmarks found in many of Sage's reels, such as cold forged, fully machined 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum construction, hard anodization, a large spool capacity via its concave, large arbor spool, and Sage's "one-revolution" drag knob.
Of the DOMAIN series, Sage director of R&D Kurt VanWyck noted, “Every Sage reel is purpose-built to be the right tool to get the job done, and the DOMAIN is no exception. This reel is designed with a nod to tradition but with all the modern engineering and advances anglers have come to expect from Sage reels.”
The DOMAIN series will offer reels in sizes 5, 8 and 10, in three colors (Lime, Stealth and Platinum). Pricing ranges from $340 to $380 (specifications below). Available in August.
