Spinfisher ssm sticky drag - fix


Recommended Posts

I got a spinfisher 950 ssm and found the drag was very sticky particularly when turned up.

How I fixed it was by taking the spool off and spraying the drag washer both sides with lithium spray. This seems to have fixed it, not sticky anymore.

Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.

Ive used Cal's grease for years on my reels, I also replace the drag washers with carbontex drag washers. You can buy the washers either ready made or buy sheets of carbontex and cut your own. These are normally a big improvement over standard washers.

Thyre the $14 ones of ebay right? 

This was just a fix to get through until they arrive. But the drag is very smooth now.
