Sage really hit a home run with their 2200 Series reels. With most of the lineup coming in at under $150, they are inexpensive fly reels but they look, feel, and perform well above their price point.
Sage 2200 Series reels are die-cast reels with a large, easy-to-use, machined aluminum drag knob and a sealed drag system that is super smooth. Their large arbor design minimizes line memory and allows for quick retrieval rates while reeling. The reel handle is also machined aluminum and give the reel a nice feel and appearance. Each reel comes with a neoprene reel case and Sage's Lifetime Original Owner Warranty.
Here is what Sage has to say about their 2200 series reels:
OWN “WOW” FOR LESS.
We’re further expanding the popularity of our hard-fighting 4200 series with the all-new, value conscious 2200 series. A large arbor with rugged machined die-cast frame, generous concave spool surface, whisper-smooth carbon drag and unexpected finishing touches like its fully machined drag knob and handle, the 2200 gives you more than the fish bargained for.
