The Mirage LT features a sealed and maintenance-free carbon and stainless steel disc drag system that adjusts from zero to full drag in a single drag knob rotation. With zero start-up inertia and precise low-end control, it eliminates line shock and protects light tippets with a silky smooth drag yet offers more stopping power than you will ever need for trout, bass, pike, musky, or carp. This reel also has a fully radiused reel foot which prevents kinked leaders. The LT has a high-speed retrieve rate, lowered reduction in line coil and is machined from strong, lightweight 6061 T6 aluminum barstock. The counterweight is "low profile" so it won't catch fingers or fly lines. Made in USA.
