Yeah, but versa drag sounds like something the marketing dept came up with to take advantage of a non-existent feature. You can mess with the order of the washers in any reel!  Kinda like Progressives name your price tool or Shimanoís Hagane tech!

Itís been years since Iíve heard of a LT 100 stem snapping so it mustíve been someone doing something stupid then blaming the reel.

just guessing, here: the versa drag seems a bit of a gimmick,
but makes more sense w/ drag washers that are somewhat compressible
by stacking fiber washers, you'd gain adjustability, as you lost MAX

w/ hard, stiff CF it would be more like Jason suggests -- straight loss of efficiency
for lower MAX, strictly, it would be better to fix the knob to bottom out before reaching said MAX
might even do it w/ some type of gasket for added water resistance
