I think they are great...wee bit bulky for a switch maybe but I'd use one on mine.
Aye, it was the weight that made me think twice. Quite alot heavier than the little guideline reel thats on at the moment. Its too quiet but feels really nice in terms of ballance for both single and double handed casting.

Caught all my salmon this year using a Perfect. I've become accustomed to the sound of Hardy reels and been listening to one since 1978. I have some new reels like Sage Spectrum Max's and a Hardy Swift that I use on different rods but they are so quiet. One thing I will admit is that those drags can be handy. Each year I deal with fingers, usually knuckles getting badly whacked by that little knob on the Perfect. Still I use it each season and don't expect to stop. When I say knuckles getting bashed think on the order of attempting to land several fish over 20 pound daily, some days many of them. I've reached the point where after subduing one or two of the beasts I go have a seat in the boat and watch the water flow past and the salmon jump.
