    Putting the call out for anyone willing to part with a drag free reel in the 2/3 wt range. I want to rid myself of the click click on my back yard rod I use on the creek out back. Thanks in advance.

    That sounds like a very nice reel and a great price. Do you by chance have a pic, my google machine isn't turning up anything. I may get it for another one of my rods, but I truly would like something smaller in diameter

    No drag, only a click pawl system.

    Might be a tad loud for you though.

    Of the two examples provided by other:

    • The Loop reel has a drag system (the tensioner on the three rollers. Adjust the tensioner, and the drag adjusts.
    • "Click pawl" is part of the drag system. I have probably 10 different reels with that system.

    If there is resistance on the line-outgo, it has a drag system.

    Still wondering the initial poster means by "no drag" reel...

    If so, you could just remove the clicker.

    I disengaged The system on one of my old reels to achieve that, it spun too much and would rat nest. The ones designed to do this have a bit of tension on them from the get go to keep this from happening.

    Denny; the word "tensioner" is correct nomenclature. A feature that is not ingrained and doesn't need to be in play to function. User choice. That said, as a rule I normally put light tension on the spool.

    "Dragless" to me brings up the image of a fresh hooked fish allowed to run full steam drawing line from a stripping basket.

    I have a Lamson LP1 Light with extra spool I would consider selling.
