There are three types of drag systems : 1. Spring and pawl or “click and pawl” systems feature a spring that pushes the prawl into a gear on the reel spool to produce a drag. Spring and pawl is best for light fishing when targeting panfish 2. Disc drag pushes a large-diameter pad against the reel spool′s braking surface. Pressure is applied directly to increase overall control and efficiency. Cork or synthetic materials like Teflon are used in disc drag systems. Cork provides a smoother more consistent pressure and can be easily adjusted. These systems are great for fighting large strong fish 3. Caliper drag systems fall between disc and spring and pawl. A caliper pad pushes against the braking surface of the spool. This friction slows the way the reel spool spins.
It′s not unusual to see their tackle banging around in the back of a pickup going down a dusty road or stored in a boat locker without being washed after a day fishing in saltwater. I often see reels spooled improperly drags set incorrectly and precious fishing days ruined because a reel wouldn′t cast right.
Modern fishing reels are complex pieces of equipment. Take one apart and it looks much like an old-fashioned watch — lots and lots of tiny parts whose purpose is known only to a few select engineers.
When you′re on a hot bite or a long-planned trip the worst thing that could happen is tackle failure. Losing a great catch due to something that could have been prevented is annoying. Avoid that problem by maintaining and regularly servicing your spinning reels and you′ll enjoy years of dependable use. Here are some steps to keep those reels in good working order.
Assemble the proper cleaning supplies. "We recommend a pan of hot water Simple Green cleaning compound Ronsonol Lighter Fluid TG's Rocket Fuel Hi-Speed Reel Oil Reel X and Super Lube Grease."
