    I'm haven't really been interested in high end reels, but this one look really interesting. Has anyone tried one?

    The drag is supposedly unique - neither a click-pawl w/spring nor a disk. It sounds like some kind of elastomer slowing spool rotation. Only other reel I've heard of with a similar design is the Vosseler RC. I'm looking forward to handling one someday.
