Slow Speed Kills
Pictured here is the new Lindgren Pitman S-1200 Variable speed reeI. I was not so excited about the reel being 25% faster as quickness never seemed to be an issue while dropping. When I took the reel out for a test I was floored by the low speed ability. The fact that I could turn down the speed and to set my drag to slip was monumental while fighting fish. The low speed on the older model is 25% faster. The fact that this slow speed is so low the drag seems ultra smooth.
