rma, I think (hope) the new speedmaster comes without the pre set star drag, that was in my opinion the only draw back with the reel. However they do lack mags so are not as adjustable to suit conditions as say a penn 525 mag that will still have the 6to1 retrieve of the speedmaster. just a thought.

All the best Ryan.

Its the speedmaster 4 not 2 series.

I have to agree the speedmaster 2CFS was probably the best reel ever produced.

Its like all good things "they have to be copied" and sometimes they are improved.

The penn may have mags but will it last as long as the speedmaster ?
