   Hey Sal, I was wondering if the carbon fiber drags perform better than the teflon? Not that I need a big improvement...just curious if there is an improvement. I just bought a 720z that I'm going to fish...it will be replacing a much newer reel that has fallen apart in a short 4 years.

Absolutely Mo, not really noticeable on this little guy, but definitely an upgrade from the teflon.
Keep  in mind this posting is over 6 years old, things change along the way. I now prefer a delrin for under the spool or the stock teflon.
This is just my personal preferance.

The 722 I fish and went through I put the carbon fiber drags in. Was it really needed maybe not, but the drag is as smooth now as any reel. Definitely a plus to me since I put 6lb line on it and like knowing I have good smooth drag in case I ever hook into something with it that will really peel the line out. It doesn't happen often since the reel is mostly used for bass fishing, but occasionally bass fishing I'll get a decent catfish, drum, or big gar that gives my light tackle setup a work out when I'm not expecting it.

   Hi Andy. Your fishing sounds much like mine...every once in a while a big drum or striper will take a wild run...and its nice to know my little bass reel will handle the situation. I've never used a Penn spinner yet, only have a few "plinth princesses" in my collection. This little 720z will probably have me seeking out more Penn spinners. Cool

 The first reel I bought for myself was a black & gold 722z. I still use it a lot. The one thing I wish it had is a Manual bail. Any one have any ideas?
  I was thinking maybe an extended bail release arm could be fashioned.

On the manual bail Idk it's never really bothered me not having one. The little penn spinners are great I like my 722, 714, and 430 a lot. The 714 and 430 I think are a little better using a worm gear vs a ring and pinion type like the 722/720. With the said the dam quick little spinners like 110's and 220's I think have much more robust anti reverse drag. If the dams had metal spools like the penns that would be the best. Mo I'm a fan fishing various rivers around me for smallmouth and fishing the ohio river below the locks that what I love about the rivers sometimes your in for a surprise as to what may bite. This past weekend while sauger jigging below mcalpine lock and dam with a penn 430 on old shakespeare presidential 6'6" rod I had a wiper that was almost 19" bite landed him but he gave my setup with 6lb test a little work out. Had the water been warmer and the wipers more active I'm sure he would have given me a better run. Once he hit I knew it was more than a little sauger didn't know if it was drum, cat, or wiper at first.

   I bought the 720 for trout/crappie fishing...but I have been eyeballing that 430ss for bass/hybrid fishing...I foresee one in my future. Cool

I used these reels up to the year 2001 for trout and Redfish. They are now safely put away.
