Default Re: Ported vrs solid reels ?

Besides making reels lighter in weight, porting allows your line and backing to dry faster.
I'm willing to bet manufacturers would have ported reels long ago if they had the CNC equipment back then to do so. Without programmable machining centers porting would have been a very labor and time intensive interprise.
