i would think the one major thing holding back a pro from using them exclusively is the slower gear ratios and/or lack of drag maybe?
Up until maybe three years ago I had a couple Diawa GoldCasts. One finally wore out and the other ended up in the hands of my neighbor's son. They were good reels. I believe they also had a drag system that was dialed in. But, like you said, CFL, the gear ratio was like 5:1 or something like that.
