Shimano Stradic 5000FI has felt drag washers???

Rate this topic

I was surprised to find that my Stradic 5000FI is equipped with felt washers. I would have thought a reel in this price range might come with something a little beefier. I love this reel, but I've now replaced these with Carbontex washers.

I agree that they don't look like much, but I have the same ones in a 3000Fi that I use for albie fishing. The drag is still as smooth today as they were last year and about 100 fish later. Also there were about 8 over slot reds thrown in the mix.

Both of mine (original felt) are toast.





If you want to know the actual size I will measure them tomorrow, Monday. I have them for just about every reel made.
