Coastal TWS drag upgrade

Post by jjbassnforfun » Sat Jul 27, 2019 4:05 pm

A bud has been beating up his coastal's drag with strippers and blues. Asked me about beefing it up some. Anybody got a Z200 that can measure the OD of the steel washers?

Looking for eared washers 32mm in diameter to be more specific?

Ordered some of the Z200 metal washers. Machined the drive gear to except the eared washer and wahla stacked drag in a coastal, zln tw or Zln sv tw. Should also work on the 2ng gen Fuego and tatula's

Very nice project. I have a Coastal and access to a mill. Might have to give this a go.

I also used a Shimano BNT4292 to top off the stack, So the stock collar could be used.
