Carbontex Drag Washers

Postby tacklejunkie2 » Tue Nov 21, 2017 8:42 pm

Does anyone out there know of a Youtube video which shows the drag upgrade (carbontex) on a low profile baitcaster? I've found several for spinning reels, but nothing for baitcasters.

I purchased a Daiwa kit from TTT and the kit has three washers in it. It appears that two of the washers are the same size and the other is slightly smaller. When I took my Daiwa reel apart, it only has one drag washer in it. The reel is a SS SV. Maybe that's the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on how these three washers are assembled (sequence)?

Smaller one will be between the clutch return plate the one with the outer cut-outs and the main drive gear, the second will be in the actual drive gear and under the stainless pressure top plate.

Only other thing i could think of if they supplied two is check their respective thicknesses - use a set of callipers and measure the thickness of the original and the two of the same diameter - use the same dimensional washer.

If you purchased a Daiwa #1 kit from us, it will not work in the SS SV, as that was a single drag stack, instead of multi disc. The kit you will need is the PIXY kit, which includes the metal drag washers.
