Not But I've heard you need to be very careful with Bauers. They work great when dry; but if you accidentially get the drag wet they tend to slip like a mother. Second hand info only.....but I know Abels and Tibors don't slip when the drag gets wet. As always; take with the proverbial "grain of salt". I'd hate to have you spend that kind of $$ on a reel you think is great; and say "####!!" the first time you lose a really good fish becauswe the drag is mucked up.
