Default Re: Click reel - Battenkill or Drift?

I am also in the market for a reel in this class. I noticed that the Red. Drift has an adjustment knob, presumably to change the drag, whereas the Orvis Battenkill lacks any kind of exterior adjustment. Orvis website does show how to make an adjustment internally after removing the spool.

I realize that this type a reel isn't about the drag, but having some sort of adjustment on the fly sounds comforting. This could also be totally unimportant.
