If you want a more modern look, and a disc drag, the Hardy UL series is very nice. The older models of this series are now on closeout. The 6000 DD balances nicely with my Meiser 10'6" 345 Switch rod. And, I ordered an 8000 DD for a Scott T3H 1105. There are new model replacement which look very similar, just cost more. That said, I also own, and like a lot, both the St Aidan and St John. They are true switch reels and the sound is fantastic.
