Default Re: What is the best trout fly reel ever made?

charged, besides being one heck of a good sales feature if a reel has a low start-up inertia it can help save a break off if you happen to nab a fish at the limit of your tippet strength. During the fight in a situation like that you might have several start-up cycles before the fight ends.
Think opposite. If a reel has a large amount of start up tension but is smooth as silk during the run you might never get the chance to experience how smooth the drag is after the start.
