The Rogue Classic features a non-ported hardback frame similar to the original Bauer Mackenzie. The Classic reel is specifically crafted to balance two-handed rods and heavier saltwater rods. The large diameter spool assures quick line pick up and ample capacity to accommodate your line combination of choice from Skagit to PowerSpey. The Classic is available in three sizes.
The Rogue Classic 5 is ideal for switch rods and 5/6 two-handed rods. The Rogue Classic 6 balances superbly with the 13′-14′ two-handed rods. The Rogue Classic 7 is designed for the largest Spey lines on the market and delivers the quickest line pick up with a 4.5″ diameter spool.
The Rogue Classic is simply beautiful.
