The drag is no joke


Going into this review, the very first thing I tested on the Alloy M was its drag strength. For a $90 reel, I honestly didn’t have very high expectations but man… this drag system is legit. It’s designed with four large carbon drag washers and one oversize Hamai CNC brass gear. This Hamai cut technology allows for more teeth which results in smooth line output and an impressive 22 pounds of drag.
