BAUER introduces the new MAC series. This introduction completes the transition from the traditional cork drag to their advanced carbon-fiber sealed drag for the entire Bauer production line up. The carbon-fiber drag system developed over the past six years has proven to be far superior to all other materials without exception. Bauer is very excited to be able offer this USA manufactured MAC without compromise to technology or function at an entry level price point.

The sealed carbon fiber drag system delivers silky smooth performance at all settings and in all conditionsno maintenance required.
The MAC has a anodized Stealth Black brushed finish. Starting at $275, the new model is now available in three sizes for 3 wt. through 9 wt. lines. Designed and manufactured in the USA, the MAC is traditional in appearance but high tech in performance. A great USA produced value.
