One cautionary note: FWX's are very light weight for their capacity and care must be taken that they will balance their intend rod properly.

Good to know , thank you. I read so much negative about the drag I pictured something a few steps above a click-pawl. It is very light and balances the sage one / TXL . I wouldn't put one on my Zaxis however. This will be my go to reel for future UL purchases.
