Re: TSI 321 on centrifugal brake drums?

Re: TSI 321 on centrifugal brake drums?

Works good, to good in some cases. VBS brake ring, no issues at all. Very slick and makes the spool faster, but those brakes were so controlled it worked out fine to gain some distance. SVS brake pipe, I usually just keep clean and dry. Used TSI on one and the reel was uncontrollable. Had to turn b...

If you like the Lews in the hand, then you will love the SLX in the hand. It's more compact feeling in the hand than the Lews, and better quality.
