THERMO is built for the extreme

The Sage THERMO boasts the ultra-robust SCS drag package that is specifically built and tuned for the extreme.

It delivers 0-20lb of drag with unparalleled consistency of drag pressure throughout the entire run of the fish. THERMO handles extremes with ease as the drag efficiently dissipates the heat across its fully sealed extra-large carbon brake discs. Twenty easy-to-see drag settings sit on top of a large diameter drag knob that is easy to grip and adjust in the heat of battle, while 39 detents allow for fine tuning adjustments for any leader and tippet combination.

The extra sturdy frame and spool are designed to hold up to the rigours of boat fishing where a knock on the gunwales or pounding run through the breakers are not unusual. With a hefty and large diameter ergonomic handle for maximum grip and control, and a large arbor spool for quick pick up and 500+ yards backing capacity, the THERMO is described as the ‘ultimate powerhouse’ of big game fishing reels.
