tcf verdict
The reel has built-in tension adjustment, a great little feature, which allows you to trot a bait without using your thumb at a speed less than the river’s flow. I would have preferred to use the reel without the line guard fitted, as I like to fast-retrieve the line by batting the drum. The tension adjustment also helped when casting as there was less chance of line overrun if I messed it up – which I do far too regularly!
