RE:A question for Captain Ray
I will be leaving for Argentina on thursday and I hope to put the 3400D to the test(sea run brown trout willing). I'll let you all know how the reel holds up in a few weeks.
I am sure that the reel is made by Water Works, but there is NOTHING in common between the two brands. The sealed drag has a series of carbon fiber discs with washers(not sure what) sandwiched. It was designed with consultation from Jack Charlton, but being the independant kind of guy that he is, he sais that they are nothing like his reels. I think that the stacked washers remind me of a Penn International.
