This has the smooth drag system I need for the giant smallmouth I am after.
First time out with this reel was a couple weeks ago. It's super smooth and casts effortlessly. Drag is high level also and had no problem bringing the bass in. Paired it with my 8 lb text line and it cats without issue. A great reel!
Managed a 32" Lake Trout through the ice this year on 6" line. Absolutely love the drag on these reels. And the grease used from the factory doesn't freeze up like other reels that are marketed for ice fishing. I have had them in -10F temps and no problem. says a lot about a reel designed and marketed for warmer climates.
