I am having a weird issue with a release SG I just got. I am having an issue with the drag adjustment. It goes from barely any drag, to a lot of drag but zero to none free spool. With some fine adjustments I can get it to have some free spool ( maybe 3 secs or less) but the drag is not much. Is this normal? I removed the drag knob and noticed there is no spring there. Would this be the culprit? I have orders the spring from seigler to rectify this.

The spring arrived from seigler, it didn't really change anything. I watched multiple videos and I still can't figure out what's up. I have maybe 3 seconds of free spool at 5lbs of drag (measured with a scale). 2 clicks from that and I get 9lbs of drag, but zero free spool and the handle binds. Time to send it in I guess.

you should be getting more range than that.  part of it is the cam.  i'd have to look to know for sure, but grinding it down might help give you a more linear progression.  let's see what the company comes up with first.  can you let us know?  thanks!  alan

I will Alan. It just got to them yesterday. I'm interested to know what the issue is.

Quick update, got the reel a while ago and tried it this past Saturday. The reel came back good as new, and the drags are very good with awesome free spool. Sadly they did not include a note on what was the issue. All in all the service was pretty fast.
