Slammer 3 drag not so much progressive

5 posts in this topic

I noticed that the drag of my slammer 3 5500 is not so much progressive: it becomes from soft to medium/hard in just one 360° turn of the drag knob. After one complete turn it becomes very hard. I think this not allows a fine drag regulation and led to something like a on/off effect. Do you think is it normal and requires just a little bit to get used to this?

Thank you for your reply archer. I found removing all spool spacers allows a little more regulation in the soft side. I also noticed that if you loose the drag all the way seems that a little drag is anyway active. This is my first penn reel and I'm really satisfacted but i was expected to find a little more room in drag regulation

Jaco,

 

The Slammer III 5500 gets 40lbs of drag and is deigned to be fished at heavier drags with the dura-drag washers in there.  When you loosen the drag all the way you will get 1-2 lbs. of drag.
