Han, you're mistaken about Meiser reels. The drag system is the same as Voessler. pin on carbon disk. Very very good. Impeccable machining, bulletproof finish, hard to find anything to criticize. Well, they may be a little light to suit my taste for spey. I can say the same about Lamsons. The reels were built to Bob's standards and his design by a european company who mills for other high end brands, but Bob offers them at a very reasonable price. In these pages, it's best to criticize only products or people you actually have knowledge of. I don't know you, but I know Bob Meiser and I catch fish on two sizes of SGS reels. And they are a great buy. As are Lamsons.
