Re: Drag style, material and rating factors?
I have a good fishing buddy that has one of those ultra light weight Lamsons and as you said the drag was a bit light. Worse yet banging around the guides boat he found that spool bends quite easily and is the dickens to get straightened out.
I'm with you, in large part, about the cut off on click awl drags. My largest is on a 7 wt outfit I use for Farm Pond Bassing.
