Those Sage 5000 series reels are sweet! Yeah, sure there are newer reels with better and smoother drags but not with the simplicty and beauty of these babies. I've got three...and still looking for a 5500.
The 5500 reel spool is what i want to use with the reel which i still use .It is however a little heavy in compared with modern kit.If i find a usable spool i will stick with the reel on my impending visit to Scotland.
