    I have an expensive (for my budget) salt-water fly reel from a reputable mfg and two extra spools.

    I would have to explain to them that if they replace the reel with a new model and your previous spools will not fit, they should do something for you.

    Aaron –

    Without naming the manufacturer necessarily, what kind of reel is this?


    Hey, Zack, thanks for the thoughts.

    It is a sealed drag reel, desgined and marketed for salt water and other challenging applications.

    I know the first failure (which occured the first time I had ever used the reel, during a salmon trip several years back) was a manufacturing issue.


    All of these drags are some sort of friction disk/dissimilar materials and some sort of compression mechanism.


    Dave, that is an interesting point.  I wasn’t aware of that, but in this case, it wasn’t cranked down much at all.  The drag was set very light.  Since the first failure, I had been using it for fish that didn’t require any drag at all (as illustrated by the ridiculously small striper in my picture).

    Still, glad I learned something new about reels.  



    I ruined a lamson by having it cranked down.
