In 50+ years of fishing with spinning reels I have never had the drag fail on any spinning reel. Ever. Even the cheap ones! Never had a need to back reel. Of course if your drag is set properly that is. In fact, I'm glad to see that feature go if it means I can get other features or the reel cheaper. I hate it when you don;t realize you've accidentally hit the button to switch it over (to back reeling) and you go to set the hook on a fish - lol! Been there, done that!!! AND, I'll betcha that is the main reason they've stopped making them with the back reel feature. Old school stuff! JMO!
