WOOA, I Though this kits were the eighth wonder of the world and really surprise me, what kind of drag caused that much damage to the drag washer ears?

I was about to post a post asking for an Adam's kit for the 113h  :-\

Looks like a classic case of failure point transfer when "improvements" are introduced aftermarket. What was never a weak point became one...in this case the CF washer ears.

Would appear that the 5 round CF + 1 delrin config may be the one that balances best against the KISS principle while increasing the drag with less "surprises" in actual use.

Agree.  Maybe this customization just  went a bit too far.  Going from three (is that correct?) to seven CF washers requires some pretty thin material - not much room for the solid core  And does the reel need something like thirteen braking surfaces instead of the original three?  At some point, we reach diminishing returns.

If the washers are eared, the core has to be strong enough to withstand the shear load that is concentrated on a set of narrow ears  instead of spread out over the whole surface.

Making thicker/fewer CF washers might cure the problem, but making accurately dimensioned eared washers without weakening the cores is a bit of a pain.

The kit I have is from Alan Tani. It's not the versa type drag kit.

It has new metal washers to change the 3 thick to 5 HT-100's

I thought the metal washers are the same size as the Senator 9/0, also the 600H washer were the same size as the Senator 6/0 H, then buy some sheets of carbon fibre 1 mm or 0.75 mm & cut you them yourself, good luck, cheers Don.
