Default Re: NEW Nautilus FWX 3/4 Review

Well I did say from trout to tarpon...and true enough, not much drag is needed with a #3 outfit. My personal interest is in a #5/6 reel that would be used on larger rivers. I still use an old Orvis CFO on some smaller streams but am of the view that a smooth predictable drag helps even experienced anglers land a large wild trout X% faster aiding in its safe release. I will not accepts design flaws in my equipment even if they pose but minimal and over-comable disadvantages. I, again, thank you for pointing them out so articulately for, even if they don't effect your specific purposes, they are magnified as the model size of reel increases for more powerful game fish.
