    around 22 pounds on them, and i wanted to know when i change the drags

    you should exceed 30 lbs on carbontex for the saltiga conventionals you listed.

    I just put a new thread on the reel segment here.
    I put carbonex washers on my saragosa 18000 and I reckon I lost almost half of the drag pressure as I only have 12kg max pressure where as they are rated to about 22kg(factory)from memory.
    It does run a lot smoother though.
