Paul, how is that Mach working out for you? I've heard mixed reviews about them; a buddy of mine had a Mach III when they first came out; had problems, exchanged it. The second 'improved' version also had some issues. He ended up getting his money back. The reel seems very cool, but . . .
ive had the reel handle fall off two of them. i bought three of them all with extra spools. i've had to tighten all the reel handles, but otherwise they are ok. i dont know if i like that contained drag, seems like you have to rinse them out extra well after salt use.
