Anyone know anything about these? Before I jump into it are there CF washers available?

measure the id and od, the thickness will be 1mm, then check with smoothdrag for the closest od. The id doesn't matter that much, close is good, but a little too big is fine.

Got the 30. Good cheap reel. Spools line well. Casts good. Has hex handle, which sucks. But it is a cheap throwaway reel. The felt drags will work fine as long as you are not regularly catching fish bigger than the reel is made for. Drag knob is sealed.
