unfortionately, i haven't been fishing much but plan to move to Bellingham, WA in Oct to test the reel out real good on great rivers in the fall. The same drag they say as their other more expensive reels and from reading other reveiws of Lamson, I don't think you can go wrong. It does pick up the line very fast and the size 3.5 i'm sure can hold any hard running coho, big bow, or dollie and mid range kings. i'll add more in Oct or Nov when Heaven opens up the floodgates of duck hunting mixed in with steelhead on great Rivers

smooth as silk, have only been out one time since purchase last week, so time will tell on reliability. but lifetime warranty puts me at ease.

I look at the Konic and this reel. They are the same in weight but the make is different this one holds up longer. The drag is top notch and so is the lager arbor.
