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
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.
