Re: Problem with Okuma CV 20 DLX drag
you,ve got me. unless you backed them off so much the drag warsher came of the threads and started cross threaded when you tightened them down. i have tried to make it a pratice to loosen the drags on all my reels. it just keeps the washers from compacting. but you did notice i said i tried. but i really just dont see how this in itself would hurt the reels.
now i did have some reels last spring that wouldnt hold, so i sent them in to tuna toms in michigan to get them repaired. well it was an easy fix on mine. i had spooled my reels with the slick braid line, and hadnt used any mono backing. so the drag was holding, it was the line slipping on the spool. so they installed a little pin in the arbor to tie the end of my line to. that fixed those reels. now when i spool any more of my reels with braid, i first spool about 200 ft of mono backing. this takes care of my problem.
