Default Drag style for 5wt

OK, I am buying a new rod this weekend and thinking about a reel as well. I have fished a regular disc drag on 5wts but in all the time in using a disc drag or for that matter a C&P reel have I had fish take more than 5-10 yrds of line.

How many of you really depend on a disc drag for 5wt. trout fishing? I just got a Hardy Zenith 9' 4wt a couple of weeks ago and went with the Hardy 2000CC Ultralite. Thinking on getting the 5wt with the same model reel, Click Check Drag system. I am just wondering how many use/depend on disc drags for this class of fly rod/reel. Is the extra cost of the disc drag worth it or even necessary.
