I'm looking for a 3wt outfit. I checked out the Bauer Superlite, Ross Evolution and the Tibor Light.
I must say the Tibor was the most interesting. The drum type drag kinda scares me though, I'm not really sure it will be reliable.
Any thoughts or experience?

I wrote Tibor and they were at first going to send me a new spring but when I asked how easy it was going to be to fit, they had me send it back and replaced it themselves.
They told me the drag was designed to protect light tippets. Well, it did, I suppose. Now it seems to work OK and I have to say that I like the reel. Tad expensive though. I now mostly use a Battenkill barstock. The Tibor gets duty as a backup or when I want to overline.
If you decide to go that way, there have been a bunch showing up on Ebay of late.
