Sage 4200 Series Fly Reel

The Best Sage Fly Reel

This last year, like every year, George Cook from Sage brought over a bunch of new product to show us. Typically we sit through the demo thinking the entire time "Sage is a rod company", this year after seeing the 4200 first hand we thought... "Sage is a reel company"! The 4200 is the most impressive fly reel we have ever seen from Sage. It has it all. Light, sturdy, smooth drag, fully sealed, "click" increments to the drag system, and a really numbered cool peep site mechanism that allows you to see exactly where your drag is set from outing to outing.

Floating Tripod Drag In Sage 4200 Reels

The Floating Tripod Drag is one of the more unique configurations of Sage's Sealed Carbon System and stands by itself in the field. The Floating Tripod consists of a carbon disk riding on stainless steel rotors supported by a triangle of three smaller carbon disks. Like the three legs of a stool, the system is perfectly balanced and incredibly low weight, providing smooth resistance through its full range of settings. As with all of Sage's SCS (Sealed Carbon System) configurations the Floating Tripod is sealed and impervious to outside elements such as sand, grit and salt, requiring no maintenance beyond simple rinsing...tough, smooth, waterproof!

About the Sage 4200 Series Fly Reel

The latest reel offering from Sage brings a sophisticated, high-performance drag system. The one revolution drag knob offers quick and precise drag settings and provides the kind of power and smoothness you’d expect from a large traditional drag system, only without the bulk or weight.

What Other Fly Reels Should I Consider?

The Sage 4200 Series Fly Reel is one of our best selling $300 reels, but it isn't our best selling reel in that price range. That is the Lamson Litespeed. Consumers that buy Sage Fly Rods however, like the Sage 4200 Series. Both offer great features and are great purchases. They each have sealed drags that utilize the same "O" ring system to seal the drag mechanism. They both use a "compression" fit with no moving parts to remove or replace the spool. The Ross Evolution LT is also a great choice for Ross Reel fans looking for a reel in the $300 price range.

Fly Line Buyer's Guide:

We make getting a fly line easy! We have 2 suggestions on floating fly lines for trout. This is based on our experience and consumer input. If you would like a fly line installed, we will spool it up and provide backing at no cost. Just be sure to let us know in the order comments if you would like left hand or right hand retrieval.

Rio Gold - a high performance line that has a non-textured slick coating and is very good for experienced casters that don't necessarily need to "feel" the rod load in order to get a good cast. This is our best selling floating fly line.

    Sage 4250 + and outstanding customer service August 24, 2016
    Reviewer: James Graham from Harrison, TN United States  
    The reel is everything I could want for my Sage One rod 10'5wt. It has just the right amount of weight to balance the rod, the chassis is subtle in design, but elegant.  What was even more impressive was the customer service at Reds! I don't have alot of experience with different fly lines - when I thought I had made the wrong purchase, I contacted emailed Reds and received a response quickly.  They recommended a fly line different from what I had (thought) I wanted - I completely trust their judgement and went with their recommendation - they were absolutely right.  For a company to give this much attention to an Internet order from Tennessee, shows that it isn't about the sale, it's about happy and successful customers.  The Big Box stores have lost my business - Reds Flyshop is where I will go for all my fly and fly fishing needs!

    Sage 4230 for 3 & 4 weight November 10, 2015
    Reviewer: A-ROB from Colorado Springs, CO United States  
    I bought the 4230 size for my Accel 376-4 and Circa 489-4. It will handle both 3 & 4 weight lines and is perfect for both.

    Because I bought an extra spool, I have spent a lot of time taking the spools on and off the reel. Releasing the spool is easy and quick, but re-inserting it is a bit more tricky. You must line up the hex bolts on the inside before the spool will click on. This requires that you tighten the drag a good amount before aligning the two parts. At first, I was trying to do it with too light of a drag setting and it didn't work well.  Thanks to Craig at Red's for setting me straight about this and it works easily now.  

    I would prefer a shiny rather than matte finish on the stealth color, but I guess then it wouldn't be "stealthy".  

    The 4230 is very light and well built. I would buy it again!

    Sage 4250 Fly Reel January 3, 2013
    Reviewer: Craig Bangert  
    The Sage 4200 Series Fly Reel is amazing! Im one that takes care of all of my gear, but my buddy has the same reel as me, and does not take such good care of his stuff.. Anyways, the reel is durable! Smooth drag and a great feel makes the 4200 a very popular reel in the rivers around my house in Heber City, Utah. Mine is a 5 weight, paired with a 9 foot Sage Vantage rod, The very best, while not breaking the bank! Love my reel and I recommend it to anyone who is in the market! You'll be hooked on sage.

    Light, smooth and durable January 3, 2013
    Reviewer: Brandon Collett from Utah  
    Tried this reel a couple weeks ago on a Sage One 4 wt w/ a RIO Gold on it. Could not have asked for a better set up for our Green Drake hatch here in Utah. This reel is light, smooth, and durable. The drag adjustments are perfect for fighting the fish of your life or a small stream brookie. The enclosed drag system is very smooth and stays smooth since dirt and grim can't get in there.

    Perfect balance on Sage ONE rod January 17, 2012
    Reviewer: Ben from Olympia, WA  
    I did it.  I got the whole package.  I bought the Sage ONE 590-4 and put a Sage 4200 Series reel on and the balance is sweeeeeet!  I am glad I did it, this wasn't easy to do but I have the fly rod and reel I always wanted.  I don't live far from the Sage rod factory and am super proud to have both a Sage rod and reel.  I really like how the drag system clicks and there are numbers so I can see exactly where my drag is set.
