Adam can attest that I have purchased and installed many of his insert kits. I have them in reels all over the NW of Florida and S Alabama.

When I noticed the drag washers ears wearing off I started puting them in dry. None of them have come back with a drag washer problem using them dry.  Penn put them in dry a lot longer than we have used them wet.

With the new thicker drag washers that eliminated the problems of the thinner greased washers.



So on the newer drags would you leave them dry or go ahead and grease them?

It has been found that greased washers work better than dry... grease them up.

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

With the new thicker drag washers having them greased will not cause the ears to wear off like the original ones did. Defiantly grease them and wipe off the excess.
