Long awaiting Daiwa 400H/400HW/450H/450HW 5+1 Drag Kits are now available.  

As you know the Daiwa 400H/400HW/450H/450HW drag system leaved a lot to be desired.  Could you get 22# of drag as advertised by Daiwa.  I could not.  I was lucky to get 15# of drag and it was sticky especially during hard runs.

Here are the pics of my original drag set-up.




Here is the Ultimate Upgrade solution.




As you can see in the above photos, you will still need to use 2 of the original drag stack metal washer.  The lower keyed washer is to ensure that the 2nd Carbontex drag washer sits above the slot in the main gear for the eared washer (See diagram below), and the last eared washer it to bring the stack height to near stock thickness.



The cost of the new drag kit is $28 shipped in the USA.  International orders will incur actual shipping charges.

Please PM me here or send me an email to Ultimate.Upgrade@yahoo.com.

Thank you.
Bryan

Bryan

Received the Daiwa 400H kit yesterday, thanks. The items look good to me, I'll install them soon and will post a report of the results.

I'm looking mostly for a smoother operation of the drags since the stock parts create enough drag but it can be bouncy and unstable, especially when the drag first begins to slip.

My two stock Daiwa keyed washers are both quite thick so I may need to play a bit to make sure the stack isn't too tall. I may need to leave the upper thin keyed washer out. It is in parallel with the top thick keyed washer so I could do that.

I've also ordered some Smooth Drag Carbontex washers for my old Trinidad & Torium 20 & 30 reels. I'll post my results for these reels. One had broken ears on the inner tube drive shaft extension. I didn't know there was a problem until I opened it, wonder how many years it has been broken.

Thanks!

There are 2 thicknesses of the keyed washers in the Daiwa stack.  Use the thinner one for the first keyed washer.  This will wilt the next eared washer above where the slot ends in the main gear.  Everything should fit as described with good smooth and solid drags

Hi Bryan.

Today I installed the new Carbontex drags and your keyed & eared washers in my old Daiwa 400H.

My Daiwa keyed washers are both quite thick, 2.37 mm thick.
My Daiwa washer is 1.41 mm thick.

Without a thinner Daiwa keyed washer I was unable to install in the order you recommend.

Because I had machined the ear slots in the gear to a deeper level several weeks ago, I was able to re-order the washers and was then able to get all washers installed with both eared washers being in the gear slots.

The stack is a bit shorter but it works great, the star wheel doesn't hit the bearing adjustment knob.

I checked the drag with a full spool of line and, with the drag as tight as my fingers would allow (no tools), I have 27 pounds of drag. I'm amazed and am also sure I won't fish with this high of a drag setting. Something would fail I'm sure.

Conclusion: Your drag kit is a winner.

Thanks,

UtahTuna
