Tame those big fish on the fly with this offering from Sage!

The ARBOR XL is designed for taming fast fish that are just as likely to charge as they are to flee, whether it’s a Henry’s Fork rainbow, a South Andros bonefish, a chrome bright Bristol Bay silver, and everything in between. These technical reels have an all-new extra-large arbor for ultra-fast line retrieval and a narrow spool for effortless level winding. The ARBOR XL is almost like cheating for those looking to gain every advantage in the most critical of situations.

The fully-machined ARBOR XL brings tested performance to an upgraded package for the most demanding anglers, with our tried-and-true Sealed Carbon System drag package tuned for optimum performance in each size class and a one revolution drag knob for reliable and repeatable pressure. There are two sizes available: 4/5/6 and 6/7/8.
