    For those of you who own a Torsa, how would you rate its casting ability versus other reels liek the Accurate boss series and similar reel with around the same drag capacity?
    Thanks,

    I don't own Torsa but I have use it few times.
    The Accurate cast better in my opinion compare to Torsa.

    I did not compare Torsa with Accurate boss, but I lose about 10 - 20 yard casting distance with Torsa compared with Daiwa Saltiga.

    OK... I will keep that in mind. I want to get a new reel to put on my 2 piece OTI popper rod. It is being built now. I am looking at getting the Accurate 665N 2 speed. I just wanted to make sure that I am getting the best reel for the job!
    I want to cast poppers. I am not totally sure that I want to use a lever drag or a star drag. Probelm I see is drag capacity of star drag in 30 size.
