I pulled apart my Avenger baitfeeder spools this weekend. Models ABF-40 and ABF-50. The 40 is rated at 14lbs of drag, and the 50 is rated at 17lbs.

At first glance the rubber seal seems to be doing it's job. Once i pulled all the guts out neither spool showed signs of corrosion. The washers were all oiled, some less then others. I have been using these reels for about 3 years now and never had them apart. I have caught many things on them, including 100lb batrays in Oceanside harbor on the 50 model. So they seem to be holding up well for the use and abuse i have put them through. We have 7 of these reels between me and 2 other people i fish with regularly.

The washers are felt. After many tries at measuring them with a micrometer the best dimensions i can come up with are.
OD: 24.25 mm
ID: 6.5 mm
Thickness: 1.1 mm

Both reels have the same drag stack... same amount of washers (metal/felt) and all the parts are the same size.

I didn't see a carbon washer size that matched up on smoothdrag. Anyone know of any reels that match up?

I tried to include a picture but i failed somewhere and was getting a attachment folder is full message.

You may want to try Penn HT-100 #6-309.  I used them on my VS45 adn VS55 spinners.
