Ruben, I also fish a couple of my Torques most every day. These are my go to reels when a rod is fished in hand. I wholeheartedly believe this issue can be solved with out using tape, glue or any other approach of this type.

More info is needed to move in that direction. Be good to know if you adjust spool tension when fishing ?  ... Jeff

So the new Penn Star Drag Torque arrived this week and I ran down to the tackle shop (shout out to Stretch at Stella Maris in Sheepshead Bay) and we loaded it up with 150 Yards of 40 pound yellow power pro braid.  I ran to the boat and tried it out on a Sea Bass and Porgy run.

What boat do you like on Sheepshead Bay?   I went out on the Marilyn Jean last year.   It is surprisingly close to the northern Philly suburbs.   The fishery is a little different from central and southern Jersey, which I fish more.

The MJV now.  It was only the MJ IV before.  They don't go that far south... down to Snake River MAX, and more often they go east.

I do go down to Belmar in winter on Jersey Transit and sleep over in the hotel across from the docks.

I had a great experience a couple weeks ago on the Big Mohawk in Belmar. Very profesional and friendly crew and we managed to nail some big fluke.
