just beginning to delv into the 8-10 wt. stuff. and hear of three excellent fresh/salt reels, ie. ross, bauer & lamson. i own several lightweight ross reels and am pleased with the quality. just handling the bauer, it appears to be a well built piece. i do understand some of the potential problems with it's more exposed cork drag, and finally i keep hearing what a good reel the litespeed and veliocity are however have read and heard of numerous drag problems. just looking for some additional input. thanks. gh by the way, am going to give the temple fork ticr a try for starters...feels good.
