Quote from: spearo776 on July 13, 2011, 06:55:49 AMhi guys and girls first post!!! i have the okuma salinas SA80 and the newer sa16000. im in the process of upgrading drags to the carbotex as i just found a supplier here to get 1mm sheet as the felt ones have "melted" from long hard running tuna up to 106lbs. there filled with 50lb spectra. great reels, only downfall in my eyes so far are - bearings in spool and roller bearings don't last to long and the felt washers .i'm sure they could easily fit carbotex ffrom factory. i've filled the body of the reels with sewing machine oil, slight resistance in winding but now i don't notice and have no fear of internals corroding.

Took me 3 hours to service the VS30. next time, it will probably take 2 hours since I know now how and what to take apart and what not to take apart.
Quote from: Tiddlerbasher on February 05, 2018, 09:33:48 PMFYI all Okuma drag washers are 1mm thick so replace felt with cf . Virtually every similar size Okuma reel uses the same size drag washers. Most bearings/bushings are similarly interchangeable on similar size reels. Thaey are cheap and easy to work on I luv em!
