SAVAGE GEAR SGS8 18000 FD 8+1BB
Tough saltwater fishing environments demand tough fishing tackle. So, how about a reel with a unique coating that easily withstood 500 hours of being sprayed with saltwater in testing? That’s Savage Gear’s new SGS8, complete with SW500 coating. The reel is saltwater resistant in other ways too, including its sealed 8+1 steel ball bearings, sealed drag system and lightweight and strong aluminum body and Carbon Reinforced Composite rotor.
Being able to withstand constant saltwater onslaughts isn’t this reel’s only quality, though. It also features Savage Gear’s Friction Control System 3 drag system, which houses washers made in a three-layer design - a fiberglass layer with a carbon fibre layer on either side. This gives the washers unrivalled stiffness resulting in an ultra-smooth and powerful, fish-stopping drag - it also means they can be flipped over and used on either side to extend their lifespan.
