Just did the Carbontex Drag upgrade on that Reel and a Saltist 40. The Saltist did improve and will hold 10 pounds of sustained drag. It couldn't before. The Saltiga 30T couldn't before and still can't even with the Drag upgrade. Not the end of the world but I expected to get at least 10 pounds. This is lifting a 10 pound barbell. I rubbed the grease off the washers too. Is there a break in period or something?
