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.

Revelation Spyder PB Fly Reels

The Spyder PB fly reels are unique and beautiful. It was designed by an artist and was perfected by engineer / machinist Arron He. It is truely a specimen to marvel at. The palm braking system is convenient and can be used for trout, bass, or other species you wish to challenge. The T-6 aluminum body and spool is very lightweight and very advanced yet keeping the fun in fishing and allowing a fisherman to truely be in control of their game. The new series of unique reels from Revelation includes this reel in 2 sizes and colors, as well as a unique split neck spinning reel and a free spool baitcast reel to be released in late 2008.

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

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...

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.
