    hi everyone, 2 questions I have for you all.

    First..... is it possible to change out the drag stack underneath the spool with carbontex as I know they are keyed and a lot of makers only do the 3 small washers on top of the spool.
    Who makes ones for the 2 large washers underneath the spool?

    Second and more importantly is that when I grab the rotor and turn it backwards it will turn backwards and then stop. What has failed ?

    Thankyou for all your help

    Cheers Mitch

    Yes, you can change out the drag with carbontex. also, you can send the reel to Shimano for service. It only costs about $30-$35 and they'll fix or replace everything.

    Sounds like your anti-reverse bearing is slipping.
