Altough i am partial to mag casting drag systems as in the Revo fresh water versions i use. The mechanical cast drag system works well when understood. And yes! It has a casting drag under left cover. Being a mechanical cast drag system. The friction system does wear out after several thosand casts with 1/2 oz to 2 oz baits. Am changing them for first time. All six friction brakes are toast.
Went back out on the water - three casts in. Same issue. Nearly threw the whole thing in the ocean. Sitting on my workbench as a reminder to never buy this brand again...
Donâ€™t do it.
The reel does exceedingly well with baits in the 1/2 oz and up range, any lighter and you may start to have some problems. I usually fish tandem 3/8 jig/gulp and topwater lures with this reel though so it does not affect me.
She is a little on the pricey side, but I think with regular maintenance it will last many years.
The reel was properly cleaned and lubed after each trip and stripped once it stopped working but I could not get it to work. It now sits unused in my tackle draw. Surprising given the cost of the reel and the rep of Abu Garcia reels.
