I may look differently at my Lamsons now that I see they are "dysfunctional". I fish brooks, small rivers and some lakes. Never had an issue with any of them in my limited fishing experience. As well as I have never taken such an in depth analytic view as you see expressed here. Too technical for me. I am curious if this problem occurs when retrieving line only at a fast pace. Again, I haven't had the opportunity to tie into some large trout. Has anyone else out there experienced the problem with this design?
Different strokes for different folks.
