With a nod towards traditional designs, Sage has re-imagined the full frame reel preferred by many two-handed purists with the new DOMAIN series.
Combining a full frame design to ensure no line pinches and the modern-day advantages of larger arbor and Sage’s Sealed Carbon System (SCS), the DOMAIN offers high performance not previously found in full frame reels.
“Every Sage reel is purpose-built to be the right tool to get the job done, and the DOMAIN is no exception,” notes Kurt VanWyck, Sage director of research and design. “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.”
Created from fully machined 6061-T6 aerospace grade aluminum, the DOMAIN is cold-forged and tempered for superior strength and rigidity. Each model is hard anodized for surface protection and corrosion resistance, and the concave, ported large arbor offers great strength and impressive capacity. The one-revolution drag knob has numbered settings for consistency. The DOMAIN easily converts from left to right-hand retrieve and is available in platinum, stealth and lime. This reel family is offered in size 5, 8, and 10 and will be available in August 2014 starting at $340.
