Default Re: Fly Reel Drag Design

Hi Richard,

The mechanical system that Hardy used in the Mk. II 8/9 that I use has been the best so far for me. However my Odyssey III which uses a draw bar cork & rulon disc / gear is dependable also. I use the hardy more but both systems are good here.

With my search for a 15 ounce reel ongoing I am considering the Henschel #5 anti reverse and the Saracicone 4 1/4" for this new rod I have. I am not familiar with either so any comments about the reels would be much appreciated.

Ard
