Default Abel Switch reel drag system?

Ok, I'm confused. According to Abel's web site their Switch reel is a double pawl click and drag, but when you do a comparison between the Classic, Switch and Spey they all reference "Cork Disc". All the reviews talk about the double pawls. Now granted I am not a Rocket Buldin Fellar, but if I remember correctly there isn't a cork disc in a pawl drag.

Does anybody know what the 2013 model's drag system is? Not that it matters, I cut my teeth on the sweet sound of reel that talks when you use it. That and has anybody had the chance to play with one? Any thoughts?

I have an e-mail into them,but as usual I am too impatient to wait.

Thanks,
Pete
