"upgrading the drag system"............? :sFun_shocked:

Put it this way, if this was the British Army in post War India and you were an Officer, and you made a similar comment to that, you would be left alone with the Regimental Webley and be expected to "do the right thing"......

Never heard anything so outrageous in all my life! :sHa_biggrin:

Hello Noodle, I myself have made various size Teflon washers for any place the spool has a friction washer. I also apply a small dab of Teflon lube of some sort when I assemble my spools.Its always worked great for me. I don't think it's feasible to change the speed at which you can lock down the drag. The drag nut thread is a fine thread thus giving the drag many increments of adjustment.To change it to a quicker lockdown the threads on the nut and the shaft of the spool would have to be changed to a coarse thread of some kind. Regards John in Pa. :sCh_fisherman: P.S. :sAng_scream: I hope that's all.

Carbon fiber drag washers considerably improve pay-out performance of these reels...
