    Any thoughts on Allen reels? I bought one recently, seems really well made for the money. Lovely smooth drag, very well finished, and not a single bit of movement between spool and frame.

    Above reel came set at drag config 3 which I find just a little too much at it’s lowest setting. Need to ease the drag off slightly . Which config should I be working towards ? 1 or 5 ? I’ve consulted the manual which I find as clear as mud. Surely we’re not expected to mess about with a...

    I bought a Hardy Angel(2) 11/12 Salmon Fly Reel a number of years ago (from a forum member) and am very pleased with it. I recently bought an original “made in Alnwick” version of the same reel, which again I am delighted with. The drag at the lowest setting on the Mark 2 reel is much stiffer...

    I recently treated myself to the H5D 9thirteen The drag comes set at 5 as standard, I specified on ordering that I would be using it for salmon fishing in Scotland & to set the drag accordingly but it still feels set too tight. Just wondering what everyone has their drags set at & how...

    Got an older daiwa lochmor 8/9, did love the reel but noticed it randomly goes into a sort of freespool mode where the drag just stops working, anybody had a similar issue or know how to stop this?

    I have a wide range of Vision tackle from boots to waders, jackets, rods, heads and reels and I've always seen them as excellent quality and value for money - my faith in them has been justified. Just recently I took apart an early #7/9 XLA reel to clean it and surprisingly the head came off the...

Then , I t’s fine again for a bit etc Not great. Especially if a fish takes and it over runs and at...

    I have a Cascapedia 8/9 MkIII with an odd drag, when the spool is near capacity (all line wound in) the drag works fine. However when the line is out and a small amount of running line remains the drag does not engage and the spool basically goes into free spool. Has anyone else had problems...

    Hi Guys I need a rubbing gasket for a Leeda Magnum 140D - the one that goes under the drag tensioning knob on the outer side of the backplate. It has a notch and a pip that both engage with steadying lugs cast into the housing. Also I wouldn't say no to a couple of Teflon drag washers, though I...

    Why isn't the drag knob on the same side as the reel handle so you don't have to swap hands when altering it...??
