I just picked up a clearwater 10 foot rod which is a real joy.
I had the clearwater II then swapped it with the Access IV. Nothing wrong with that reel, but the drag isnt fully sealed. I am the kind of person who wants versatility in my gears. So in this case i wanted my reels to be able to swim in the salt as well. But of course, i still have to rinse the reel after usage but less worry when using it in the salt.
BEWARE...Once you switched, you can't switch back. :
and NO, I am not an expert, I just think like one.
