    Feels more powerful than my older saltigas but not as smooth reeling (by a small margin), clicker is loud, drag is definitely stronger. I have the 14000XH.

    Let me put it this way, if I find the last gen saltiga at a discount price I'd buy that, but I'm going to save up and buy more 2020 saltigas for my arsenal. By discount I'm saying I'd be willing to pay $300 more to get a new one from digitaka. Still waiting for Alan Hawk's review to come out on these.

    New drag ratings are 55 lbs and 66 lbs on the reels. Old reels had 33 lbs and 66 lbs of drag (depending on size of course). Drag on the new reels is definitely updated.

    The latest news by Alan Hawk on the 2020 Saltigas:

    "I have no feedback on the new Saltiga except that turning the handle gives me an instant stiffy"
