Hello guys Iím new to this forum.
Iíve got a 12/0 senator with a crome over brass spool .
The drag has been backing off during fights with fish . This reel is my work horse.  I need it to function top shape. After looking around on here , Iíve seen some awesome upgrades and builds .  It seems like all the good parts for these bigger reels come out in batches. Drag inserts , stainless parts ... not to mention double dog customizing .
Anybody willing to help with any of this , would be much appreciated ! 
Thanks in advance

Hello Polukaimaui , if you wanted to make your reel functional again it is doable, but you will need to post a pic of the drag stack.
This is simple, you should be able to pull them off without opening the reel.  Just try to keep everything as they are and carefully lay them on a bench.

If you wanted it upgraded and others don't get to you, I do upgrades as well, but have 2-3 weeks turn around.

By the way, I'm actually the guy that came up with the double dogs upgrade and showed others how it's done, but it was a long time ago and has been forgotten by most Smiley.

So, see  which direction you want to go with the reel and we'll help you out. If no one else gets back to you or you wanted me to customize it for you, send me a PM and well discuss details.

Welcome aboard.

It's true; Alto Mare is the dog-doubler par excellence: https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aalantani.com+alto+mare+double+dog

I do have one or two of the 12/0 insert drag kits in stock.  I also stock stainless steel and titanium handle arms for the 12/0.

Use Cals.  I like to rub it into both sides of each washer good, then wipe the excess off.  Some folks just got it in, and the pressure from use will push any excess out.  I don't like extra grease because it attracts dirt and debris.
