Basically, the click check provides a certain level of tension, and if you need more drag you use the palming rim. (Which is all you really need for trout. Heck, Lee Wulff even used to catch 20-lb salmon that way.)
Quite correct, same idea as the Abel Creek, personally I wish they had just left the old BBS as it was.
