interesting thread - what is this reel? What does it look like?  

 

Lever drags not for bottom fishing? everyone is entitled to their opinions. My opinion is lever drags are not for maxing out the drag (crush the pinion) but otherwise are fine for bottom fishing. I've caught tog to 18.5lbs on Avet SX and avet LX is all i used for tilefishing until last year when I got an accurate bxn600.

Small early Avets are hard on the bearings, newer models and Raptors much less so.  We have a poster (haven't seen him in awhile), Dr. Planet, who was going to machine the sideplates and replace the BBs in question with thrust bearings, but other posters who looked into that decided it was far more grief then it was worth ... better a good star drag. Or a different lever.
