Daiwa SV103 drag star question

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

So I went and got a Zion drag star for my SV103, and for the life of me can't figure out why it won't "work". Once installed, I can't tighten or loosen the drag star.

I replaced my SV105 drag star with no problem. Any advice?

So is the drag tight all the time or loose all the time?

This may help? As it seems like there's variations of installing it depnding on reels/washers.

Always too tight. Thanks for the link- I'll go check that out.

Update:

I checked and it appears the collar on the SV103 is too small for the Zaion drag star- which is causing the drag star to be too tight. The SV105 collar works though. I'll search for a replacement collar.
