Beutiful reel, is it just me or did I not see a drag stack? With all that metal, I'm certain you could put quite a bit of torque on that thing.

It is inside the spool under the top tension adjustment washer, which is pressed in.

It consists 2 metal washers and a coil spring. Since this one isn't going to be fished I opted not to try to pop out the top tension adjusting washer and bend it. I thoroughly cleaned the innards of the spool drag and left it be. The drag recess is about a half inch deep.

Love those open face spinning reels! (Especially ABU & ABU/Zebco Cardinals)
