It's the top-of-the-line Shimano fly reel

I've seen it and played with it at a shop in Japan last year. It's actually a very nicely built reel. Shimano makes great bait casting and spinning reels for small to medium games. This one is no...

Nothing is wrong with this one. It's just that I bought a second Mako 9600 (and am waiting for a 9700B) which will make this Gulf Stream unused in the future. It's a very nice reel, no doubt. I...

I don't know how much the total drag would be off the rod tip, as compared to off the reel when the backing is going out with the rod bent at some angle. I did, however, checked the static force off...

salmo,

Thank you very much for the information.

I can now see that the Control's drag strength may be fairly close to that of Mako's. (Incidentally, the Mako 9700B will be designed to have...

salmo,

No, read carefully what I wrote. The only aspect of the Danielsson's drag that I put lower than the Mako's is its strength. Remind you, I like Danielssons only second to the Mako. The...

My take on Mako reels

Yes, I have put lots of hours of fishing on my Makos and been really impressed! I have used them for bluewater and flat fishing and have nothing but great things to say about them. Their drag...

salmo,

I have jacked up the drag tension on my LWs to the max usable range (the strongest setting that still gives me perceptible changes in the drag strength in one turn of the drag knob), and...

I'd say that your reel is not working well, if it sticks when giving out the line. My Tioga 12 and Lamson Velocity developed this problem in the last year or so after being used on the flats many...

FishHawk,

I actually have been doing more than rinsing (see my initial post). That's why I was surprised to see rusting on my new reels. The same method has kept my Teton and Tioga in a great...
