Hello
What do you think about SAGE 3850 CF reel? I got offer to buy it for ~$220 with spare spool. Is it worth of this price? What do you think about this reel generally?
Thanks in advance

It's a phenomenal reel! I have one on my 5wt and it's by far the best reel I own. It's ridiculously light but solid. The drag engages immediately. There's no lag or creap in it at all. Whether a fish is pulling slowly or screaming, the reel has zero flaws.

I have the carbon fibre spool version as well and the spool is great. Just makes for an even lighter reel. I have the reel on a sage fli 5wt and it's very well balanced.

I landed a 7lb brown with 4lb tippet on it last year. Was my first trophy brown and without that reel I seriously doubt I would have been able to land it. No jokes.

Get it. And if you don't like it, I'll buy it.

Nick
