Sage 705 (Loop) Fly Reel.
SAGE 705 (LOOP) FLY REEL. VERY GOOD / EXCELLENT CONDITION.
Original Sage 705 reel. There are a few small scuffs on the rear side of the reel and some rubbing on the reel foot. The spool is near flawless.
I believe this reel is part of the earliest generation with a low serial number. I won't go as far as saying that it's collectible just because of the low serial number, but it certainly precedes the later Loop and Danielsson marketed versions.
This reel for sale was meant to be a back up to an identical 705 reel that I've fished pretty hard over the years. But it did see some use as it is about one of the smoothest reels that I've owned. With these 705 reels, I've never had to adjust the tension of the bearings after the initial setting as the design seems to minimize "back-lashing" and free-spooling.
The reel hasn't been used in some years, and was professionally maintained, lubed, etc., via a fly shop prior to storage in my closet. The reel comes with a neoprene protective pouch. The line, a SA MPX WF5, will also be included. The line has been used but still has plenty of life left, and I wound it on this reel to gauge fit.
