    yes this fish blew up my Ross Cimmarron 4....She was super hot and I just about had her to hand, she took a blazing run across the river the drag failed, and the reel went into free-spin and I couldn't take in line. I had to manage the rest of the battle by stripping line and letting it slide through my fingers when she really wanted to run....after several more jumps and close calls I tailed her. With no reel, I had to quit fishing for the day, I needed to sit down anyway.
    Well, a quick plug for Ross...I don't fault them at all for the reel failing mid-fight. This reel was a workhorse and was mistreated. Six steelhead seasons, a summer in Alaska (kings, coho, cums, pink, sockeye), Stripers and false albacore in the salt, a few chum trips each fall, lots and lots of Bulls....dropped on rocks, buried in sand....etc. Ross replaced the reel body for free, and the spool for $15......brand new reel!
