Here is my question. I recently purchased a Saragosa 18k. According to Shimano the max drag is 44 lbs. With the Carbontex drag upgrade, what will the max drag be? Will it stay the same or will it increase? Or is the benefit of this drag upgrade for the smooth starting and stopping of the drag? I haven't seen a comparison online. I've only seen everyone praising the Carbontex drag upgrade. Can somone educate me on the true purpose of the Carbontex washers?
