Micro Cassette Drag

The Sage Micro Cassette is a SCS drag engaged 3:1 machined gearing inside the reel's large arbor spool. This package is extremely light weight while providing enough stopping power for any fish you might choose to target with up to a 9 weight in your hand. Micro Cassette Drags consist of a sealed stack of roughly dime-size carbon disks in contact with stainless steel rotors. These components are created to precise tolerances and able to dissipate heat  that can be the ruin of less sophisticated drags. The multiplied surface area and 3:1 rotation in this configuration provide smooth reliable resistance with amazing range. Even better, SCS Micro Cassettes are sealed and impervious to outside elements such as sand, grit, and salt, requiring no maintenance beyond simple rinsing.
