New Ice Reels

I have been doing some research on the new style ice reels that have hit the market in the last two years. These are the straight line reels that look like small fly reels. They claim to be better due to the fact that the line comes off the reel straight eliminating lure spin. 
I have heard from different people that the drag systems are no good on these reels. I checked them out at the Gander Mountain First Ice Show this year and found this to be true on the cheaper models. As someone who spends most of his time on the water fly fishing these reals naturally appealed to me. I will be purchasing one in the next week or two. Has anyone used one of these reels yet? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
