    Why do RAPTORS have such high drag ratings?

    Right on Plj46, good point.
  129. fishinguy1031

    Why do RAPTORS have such high drag ratings?

    In my opinion, it is a marketing thing, AVETS are good reels, but small, so they offer high drag ratings to equal larger reels that are being used for the targeted fish, plus the idea of smaller reels means less manufacturing cost, but throw the fancy anodized colors, high drag rating, and...
