Centerpin reels are completely drag free both in and out. Line-wise, centerpinners tend to use different weights of mono, and you'll see some pretty crazy shot patterns from centerpinners as well. Rod-wise, I don't know how much difference there is, but Centerpin rods tend to be of switch- to Spey-length. That's what I've seen based on the number of centerpinners I see whenever I'm out fishing.
