Default New Reel From Piscifun

Saw this pop up on my Facebook feed. I know we have a few Piscifun fans here, so thought I would share.
The "crest" fly reel. Will start shipping end of September (they are taking preorders).
Specs say fully machined and anodized, fully sealed carbon drag. Also noticed they are including a lifetime warranty. Black and green colors only so far listed on the website.
Looks mighty handsome to me! Seems like at the price point ($94) they might be bridging the gap between the sword/blaze and Platte. Might have to get one of these to play with and review, I love all their other reels.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

I have two Swords.

What do you make of this part of the description on their site?

"Multi-disc cork and stainless steel drag system with one-way clutch bearing provides smooth operation
Click Drag design offers accurate adjustment
FULLY SEALED CARBON-to-STAINLESS DRAG - Impervious to water, sand and grit, requiring no maintenance except for simple rinsing."

Cork or carbon fiber? Both?

I think it will be the carbon drag from the platte with the price point, and imagine the cork part is a typo.

Lol........ think I already have that one.

Ordered & recieved Blaze some months back. Other than this reel am not familiar with others. Pics & specs can be found. But an exploded schematic of drag no.
Imagine major differences in Blaze & up so to speak. Is in drag. Can anybody explain differences between reels other than cosmetic ?

Tia......... pc

Blaze and sword are the same mechanically. They have a cork drag.
Platte has a fully sealed carbon fiber drag.
I did shoot an email to Piscifun, and they confirmed the new crest WILL BE fully sealed carbon fiber drag. The cork bit was a typo.
I have a Platte, I think it had a parts diagram, I'll see if I can dig it up for you pnc.
Edit: Amazingly, I actually had the booklet together with the box:
