    Saw a posting on Instagram yesterday from accurate. The posting had a partial picture of a reel. Looked like a black and silver BV. Made a point to cover up the lever drag portion of the reel. OR possible star drag!!! Twindrag would be an expectation but could that still work with a star configuration?

    I've been hoping for this for sometime so I hope that's the case. If so bye bye Trinidad. :rolleyes:

    Wondering if anyone else saw that post or how they feel about the possibility of accurate offering a star drag option.

    I've been looking forward to a star drag and have a good feeling this could be it. Just an observation but I think if it was a lever drag, with that much of the one side showing, we would have already seen "free" and a few hash marks. That's why I'm thinking it's a good chance it could be a star drag. Thankfully, if it is, accurate has the trend to offer a few different gear ratios and that would be awesome! This is definitely making me wait before I make anymore big purchases =)

    It is a star drag. I saw the beta prototype test model two weeks ago. Finally something for us jig slingers! Held off on buying the Okuma Tesoro and that Cabela's deal on the Penn Torque 25 when I got wind of this. I think it's worth the wait on Accurate's first production model star drag reel. Also be on the lookout for a possible new line of rods...Good things coming out of Corona!

    Awesome! That's what I was hoping to hear!! I was also looking at getting the tesoro but I heard about this possibility and am glad it's coming to light!
    I saw the rod line up. Tackle direct has them up on their website now. I'm just hoping that we won't have to wait for the reels till next year.

    Screenshot_2018-07-09-08-16-09-1.png They did a good job chopping it up over the past couple of days! It's funny though how you can see 75% of the reel but still not picture it without the last 25%. Well played!

    I'm saying it's a star drag because the width of the side plate that would usually have lever drag bits on it

    I sure hope I can get one before my August trip.

    I'd be stoked to have a big narrow star drag for irons.

    Can I pre-order?

    I am hoping for a star drag configuration, luckily I have been delaying my jig reel upgrade

    Accurate is claiming industry innovation on the same level as twin drag so I am going on a limb to guess a 2 speed star drag
