Just livin’ my life easy come easy go...
Just kinda wondering what are the symptoms of a cork drag that has been left tight. I buy used reels and haven’t really noticed anything...yet.
whoa, no need for a "fix". That is exactly how you want it. That is when the drag cork is "sealed" to the spool before it releases. Remember the Post of a Gulfstream that lived in the ocean for sometime and the drag was still good? That was because the drag was "sealed" with the cork and grease. Dont change a thing, do not clean and re-grease. It is exactly how you want it.Thank you. So is there a fix? The reel I’m particularly concerned with is an older Everglades that is “sticky”. Meaning it will still have drag on the spool for several revolutions after backing the drag off to loose.
