Thanks for the reply Bryan. Once it goes higher, it effectively locks up and it's constant, when it occasionally backs off it's almost freespool. Back the drag off move the preset back and forward a couple of clicks and back to where it was and everything's back to normal. The better of the two just seems to go a bit heavier, and that may just may be my paranoia! I really like the reels and apart from this would be buying a SGN (as I believe it has a thinner reel seat and would be perfect for a PE1-3 jig rod I have), but now considering the Maxel Hybrid 20.

Kind regards,

Howard

Played with one of the reels today and noticed that when the drag was increased the preset knob moved up a few clicks and went down when backing lever back to freespool. Never noticed this on any of my other lever drags. Anyone know if this is normal for Release/Truth/Seigler. Could it be that over a days jigging in shallow water with the the drag being constantly changed from on to off to on many many times that it sometimes doesn't go back to the original setting and increases over the day? Any ideas?

Cheers,

Howard
