Does anyone make a reel that has a spool release button rather than a thumbbar?  I got in the habit of thumbing the spool when fighting a fish and thumbbars just get me in trouble.  Thanks

Yeah, I've got a couple 5001's.  I guess I was thinking more about a low profile type of reel. Thanks.

Anout the last reels with a thumb button besides the Ambassadeurs were the Quantum 1310's and 1420MGC, and they weren't really "low" profile.  

 

I still have 7 older reels with thumb buttons and it DID take a bit of getting used to the thumb bars.  Now I use both with no issues.  Give the bars a chance, you'll get used to 'em in no time!

A lot of the older reels have this.  Megabass did a version of this reel.  I have always been curious to fish one.  Might be intresting to pitch with.

Ardent reels had one, but don't know about now.   I think it was the Denny Brauer model.

I liked the concept, but the didn't like how it palmed. It felt like a big block.

I agree. I wanted to like the reel but just couldn't.
