Loved the size and function of my new VISX20 on my recent 18 day trip. This was the reel's first outing. I did love having the position "strip" on the lever, as so often I wanted easy access to more line with no risk of overrun/tangle. It was the case, however, that moving from strip to the drag section of the lever positions was quite hard. Had to really get behind the lever and push. I think it may have loosened a bit over the course of the trip, but not much, and I would certainly prefer an easier transition. There was only one other VISX20 on the boat but it had been "Cal'd," so comparison was not clear. This other one was definitely easier to transition. Comments??
