Default Re: Decisions decisions....

I am leaning towards the Lamson Konic. It has a great drag system that will last. Plus Waterworks-Lamson has been around for many years. It is a very reputable company.

Quality control is high on the Konic. The pressure casting process is more precise than a reel that is gravity cast. Pressure casting eliminates nearly all of the inconsistencies that gravity casts have. Is it as pure as barstock? Probably not. After the piece is pressure casted, it goes on to be CNC machined to get its tight tolerances.

I won't comment on the Allen reels except that many on the forum seem to be happy with them.
