I'm intrigued by these reels. It seems to me that they would be perfect for fishing circles, in that the initial resistance could be fine-tuned. I've always felt that light action rods that would load slowly would be best for circles, but for many reasons, they're not practical, so it seems like lever drag reels on heavy action rods might be the ticket. Has anyone tried the Shimanos? They're billed as trolling reels, so I wonder if they'll cast okay.
