The drag system doesn’t mess around, either

When I set the hook while I’m flipping and pitching, I don’t want a single millimeter of line to leave my reel. I’m sure some anglers, many who are more talented than me, might disagree but that’s just how I’ve always preferred it to be. I just prefer to have total control of things when the chaos ensues.

Fortunately, this reel gives me that ability. It features a 20-pound carbon drag system that has been plenty strong enough to horse fish out of both grass and wood without getting wrapped up. I definitely give this drag system a thumbs up.
