I had one of these reels many years ago. Apart from drags and handgrips, have star drag reels got any better than this?

Full metal frame and side plates, sensible gear ratio, stainless ratchet and dog, stainless eccentric jack and gear plate and an adjustable handle length....oh, and a nice spring on the dog.
OK, I`m going to find one of these . It`s the next step in my "back to the past" mission.

50H is one of the best

I worked deck on a Blue Fish boat & used these for the rental rods. We saw many tangles but very few reels broke down even with a bunch of Googans using them. I have a few that are ready to go at it again.

I have not failed.  I just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

I just replaced the drag in my 50h and can only get 9lbs of drag any ideas why I can't get the 15lbs you can?I used the same washers that you did but could not get the washer for under the gear, there I used one of the plastic type washers found under alot of main gears.I don't think that would cause less drag but I'm not sure.The other thought I had is that maybe my reel is spooled with more line (I spooled it all the way up to the red lines on the spool). I also added a second fiber washer with the top washer to make the spacer sleeve stand higher so the star wouldn't bottom out and still only 9lbs of drag. Thanks for any ideas  :)
i had the same problem

Well, I found one. Best $40.00 I have spent for a long time.
It had so much grease inside and out, the bearings are excellent.
Just need to get some drag washers now.

I bought the Carbon X Drag Washers from Dawn. I hung up the Phone & they were in my Mail Box.

Mate, we do, her names Dawn and she's about 10 days away. She delivers quicker to Perth than Aust Post does from Perth to Mandurah about 70 kms away.

Her prices are also a lot better, including freight, than any Australian supplier of her product.
Only believe that which you know to be true.

None of this surprises me. Dawn has earned her reputation with stellar service, world-wide!

Finished the SL 50 H  finally.  Cleaned it up, lubed it , I used some leftover Penn drags I had, filed the inside holes slightly followed one of Alan's suggestions on another thread and placed a Penn Reel Seat on it  and a 3/0 handle on it.  Now I just need to spool it up!
Bad day of fishing still beats a good day at work!

Great! I love my Sealine reels. I just put one of Bryan's drag sets in my 600H for a snapper trip on Sunday.

I just noticed some have permanent reel feet and some are removable (screwed-in). Any insight on this? Different batch perhaps?

This reel is still in my arsenal, untouched since the day you returned it.  I really have to fish more....
I woke today and suddenly nothing happened.

......... to rebuild the old daiwa sealine 50h, you need four penn ht-100 drag washers.  one is part #6-855 from the old discontinued penn 855 line counter.  three are part #6-114, from the black side plate 6/0 penn 114.......now i've cleaned everything up and switched out the stock drag washers for the penn ht-100 drag washers........

Do you happen to know what the dimensions are for these drag washers?
OD?
ID?
Thickness/Three Stack Thickness?
