I like the balance of heavy reels which Bauer's are not. Despite going one size over on most setups, I still find all of my Bauer reels lacking in sufficient weight to balance to my liking. To compensate for this lack of weight, I have found a couple layers of the old lead core trolling line wrapped on the arbor does the trick. Not mention, you can't use that stuff for much else anymore.
The main difference between the new CFX & the older MX reels are the V arbor and the fully sealed, maintenance free, carbon fiber drag. Were I rolling in bucks, I would have nothing but the newer Bauer reels. Oh well, what I have works.
I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.
