Default New Reel

The search for a new reel has begun for the right reasons, big fish. I had a great day on the Clinch yesterday! I caught several fish with the smallest in the 16" range and multiple 20+ inch fish. The problem is my Sage 3500 reel relys on the personal touch for a drag, while it was loads of fun I eventually decided it would be more fun if I was not the drag cause with my sharkskin line I now have raw fingers. But very proud to have them. With this said I am considering a Lampson Lite speed or a Ross Evoloution reel. How about some feedback or other sugestions. Going on 5 wt 9' Sage z axis.

Are you sure its a Sage 3500 reel? That's for a 9/10 wt rod and don't all the sage 3000 series reels have a sealed disk drag?

You are correct it isn't a 3500 I made a mistake, it is a 3300. But there is no drag, I would love to be wrong, it would save me several dollars.

I just cup my hand and put my fingers on the reel rim for drag. Don't think I want a sharkskin line. Your about the third report I've heard of raw fingers.

Stripper fingers! 5 bucks @ LRO no cut fingers. I have 2 Lampsons and they withstood blistering runs from Bonefish, permit, seatrout, redfish, I think they can handle clinch river trout.

I've owned the evolution and the litespeed. They're both nice, but I'd go with the litespeed.
