For me ,when ice fishing I want a smooth drag that does not bind up. With cheap reels you either are to loose or to tight. They stick witch cause brake offs or most often when the crappies are finicky you get them by the skin of the lip or inner mouth. Known for paper mouths you can rip a jig free with too much pressure,So to have a drag that is set strong enough to set the hook ,but then brakes loose is about right. I find that I do not loose so many when I set the hook.
also when I happen into those monster pike ,you still have a chance to battle it. Just because my line is only 4 test ,I can still get 10 or 20 lbs.fish if the drag brakes loose. As long as the teeth are not into the line.
