The Sage ENFORCER has been updated and fine-tuned for the power, reliability, and durability needs of the saltwater flats angler. Like the renowned THERMO big game bluewater reels, they are designed with peak performance in mind. The ENFORCER offers everything the flats angler needs in a reel, whether taming the explosive runs of hardy Bonefish or putting the brakes on the freight train pull of triple-digit tarpon. Simply put, this is the ultimate saltwater reel for flats and heavy-duty fly-fishing applications.
Sage beefed up the O-rings and drag plates for added durability, consistency, and reliability because battles on the flats are exercises in nuance and chaos. Maximum drag has been increased by 50% over the ENFORCER’s predecessor, the SPECTRUM MAX; with eight pounds at the arbor in the 7/8 size, 15 pounds in the 9/10 size, and 17 pounds at the arbor in the 11/12 size. For saltwater anglers fishing heavy tippets who don’t want to let fish run continuously—or who care enough about their fingers to avoid palming fast spinning spools—this increased drag allows them to get most out of their reel without sacrificing any metacarpals.
It's well known that reels can take a beating in the salt flats environment; sand, wind, and salt love nothing more than finding a cozy spot inside a saltwater reel. The ENFORCER is more durable compared to other saltwater flats reels with larger drag discs to better disperse pressure and maintain the consistency of the power band throughout the fight by stabilizing inherent stopping strength. An all-new reel foot design with radiused corners prevents abrasion to leaders wrapped around the reel foot for storage or in the unfortunate moments when the line wraps around the foot in the initial chaos of the hookup.
Sage combined the old reliable features and the innovations with a burlier and more rigid, rugged cold-forged aluminum frame for a reel that stands up to the drops, knocks, and beatdowns that frequently occur in saltwater fishing situations.
