Greg, not sure how the drag on these reels do with repeated long runs using 60 - 80 line with appropriate drag.
 Fish I'm after dont do this. The drag set on yours I'm venturing it would be a non issue. I do wonder about the cork or whatever the washer is that's glued to the bottom of the spool. But this far its proved to pretty durable... Jeff


Yes Jeff, I have never had a reel with a cork drag. Don't know much about them, but have seen some quality reels with them.
One thing I am going to add is the separator washer that sits between the metal drag washer and the plastic spool cap to stop heat affecting the plastic cap.  
My reel never had one of them, but it appears on the 5001 and looks like a good idea.  I`m wondering what its made of.

 Greg, I noticed your pics didnt show this washer. I just thought at the time you had it but it wasnt in the pic. This washers appears to be asbestos but of a different weave. I personally believe it is needed for any one using these reels for salt water fish.  I want a Penn Torque spinner in a very bad way. In all honesty the 5001 will do  any thing I need & do it extremely well... except for the parts availability thing... Jeff

Yes, agree on the PENN Torque. A very desirable spinner.

Another reason I changed back to the stock washers was because the carbontex was not thick enough at .98mm. which resulted in the line bunching up at the top of the spool.
Even the line lay adjustment disc under the spool could not remedy this.
I measured the bottom asbestos washer and it was 1.59mm thick and the top one was 1.22mm thick.
Putting the stock washer back under the spool fixed the line lay.

I’m thinking adding a couple to get to the correct thickness wouldn’t hurt anything., but looks like you have it working just fine.
