Who should use a fully sealed drag?
Sealed drags first rose to prominence among saltwater anglers, and for good reason. As discussed, salt and sand can quickly hinder a reel's performance. For anglers fishing from the beach, wade fishing, or submerging their reel in the saltwater, a fully sealed drag is an absolute must. However, sealed drags are more than just saltwater reels. For steelhead anglers, fishing in frigid temperatures is part of the fun. Yet as soon as water gets inside an unsealed drag, it can freeze - causing the entire reel to seize up and ruin a day of fishing. Even freshwater anglers who aren't wading in 30 degree water can greatly benefit from the protection and peace of mind a fully sealed drag can bring. Fully sealed drags like the Cheeky Limitless Series are the perfect reel for any angler looking to get the most out of their equipment, with minimal maintenance.
