As you know, I went on a crazy Galvan buying binge. LOL My reels are all ready to go, except my one 6 weight reel. Its a brand new cross current g loomis, thats a fine looking reel, just very heavy. Looks purdy, smooth, however the Galvans are just over powering it
. However, for a light/medium duty trout reel, the FWX's seem real nice too. I do not plan on targeting trout larger then 20-24'', so the 5/6 FWX should be fine...
I have just heard they lack the drag compared to the Galvan, which is why a t-8 went on my 7 and 8 weights, rather than the FWX. but, I wouldn't mind trying it out on my six weight, especially for the price!
The FWX reels look SICK as well.
Any reviews out there on it? I believe its the same drag system as the earlier FW series...And while were at it, how was the FW series and the drag?
