Hey guys im new here and i am in need of some help. I recently purchased a Avet Pro 30W and i was wondering how do you set the drag to where you want it because max drag is at 40#? Other then clicking the strike lever. Your help is appreciated.... Don't mind my dumb question :) i lost the manual :(

I am concerned. :)
You set your drag while in free spool. While in free spool, turn the drag setting knob on the side plate to increase or decrease drag. Then put the drag lever to strike position and check drag with the scale.
The drag at strike should be 1/4 - 1/3 of line rating.

You can pick them out by the numbers on that knob. I set mine to a #3 or #4. Usually that works best. Sometimes I wonder if that is in metric or in gross foot pounds per square inch, or what ?

i have the wide version of the same reel - I doubt you'll want to do over 30-35lbs of drag since if you fill the line with 130lb braid backing and 100lb topshot you will not have a ton of line. plus, that is plenty for almost all fish you will catch
