After investigation, I found that the Asian semi automatic fly reel does not hold more than 5 wt fly line. now I could catch fish with it but I like carp. Sometimes I will push the Franco Vivarelli graphite. It is fragile but can take carp when handled correctly. I recommend the ATP 37 graphite for carp and big fish. It takes 7 wt line has 8 drag settings and costs less than $200.00. unlike the Vivarelli, the ATP 37 drag can be adjusted while the fish is on the line
