Click and Pawl Reels
I am looking for options for a 4wt 9ft Sage One
I have a Reddingtont Drift on a 3wt that I have and love the sound.

What are other reels of this type out there that would make a good companion to the Sage?

Re: Click and Pawl Reels

Produced in England to the same specifications and using the same tooling as the original CFO, these Limited-Edition classic CFO fly reels are magnificent pieces of fly-fishing history sure to be future heirlooms. First offered in the Orvis catalog in 1972, the CFO quickly became an iconic reel in the fly-fishing community, thanks to its unrivaled sound and unique, timeless appearance. Manufactured in England for the next two decades, the Hardy-made CFOs developed a devoted following over the years that continues to this day. As a respectful nod to the past, a limited, individually numbered supply of these spring-and-pawl reels will be made. Each is a replica of the riveted 1972 model with subtle updates such as a gray anodized finish. This classic fly reel comes in a soft leather reel case and commemorative box. Weighs 3.3 oz.

I do love my CFO's which click (check) due to having spring loaded pawls; no ONE is a candidate for low performance reels, however. Where and how will you be fishing your new #4 ONE?

I use either a Lamson LP1 or an Abel TR-1 on my Sage ONE 4 wt.

Both balance the 8' 6" version perfectly.

The other one I've used recently is the Sage 2030, but it's slightly heavy.

I am fishing Abel Creeks in my Z-Axis and ZXL rods. The Creek 2 large arbor models should be fine.

I am very pleased with my Hardy cc3000 on my 3 & 4 wt. rods.
A smooth running work of art.
Hardly any drag, but at those weights that's fine.

Re: Click and Pawl Reels
the hardy ultralight cc reels would be a great choice.
i have a 3000 and it is indeed a fine reel.
very smooth click and the machining is very tight;)

and imo, good looking reels as well.

Re: Click and Pawl Reels
Thanks for the info- much appreciated.

This will be my go to rod for the creeks and rivers around me. Smallmouth, chubs, panfish and carp mostly with some trout as I am only 2.5 hrs from stifles region in wi.
I will be by local orvis tommarow and will check out the CFO III
I am also going to check out the Hardy and the Abel.
