I took this reel out to Panguitch Lake, Utah to break it in proper. I tested it on huge Rainbows, monster Cuthroats, and some fat Tiger's (Trout). The Lamson Konic 2 is a true performer... I took and released 25 fish (3-6 lb class) with this reel. I set the drag tension to the tippet strength, and kept it the same position for the entire time I fished. There wasn't so much as a hiccup. I truly enjoy fishing this reel, and won't be looking for a new one for a long time.
