Hi guys, sorry to bother. any body knows where can i get drags for this reel?
It is a pretty old real when i bought it when i was in Pri 5 in 1995. reckoned that this old reel is so cheap at that time to have spare parts manufactured for it.

Reason for overhauling:being sentimental

Model of Reel: Jarvis Walker Classic 550 Graphite Conrstruction Gear Ratio 4.8:1

thank you for looking!

    Your reel is not commonly found and it is quite old, therefore to find spare part is a difficult task. Unless, it is worth the effort to modify.

    Hi,

    If u looking for the round metal washer with the square hole inside as in first pic than quite difficult u may need to consider like what Jack said.

    Manually - u can get round washer slowly file the square hole.
    Getting machine shop to create a relipca will be much easier but will cause a little.

    If u wanna replay that piece of metal, just go to machining shop, they'll do it for u. If wanna icrease the drag, just get some thin carpet and make sure not velvet kinda fabric material, cut it into the shape. If really cant find, then u can try using the plastic CD holder, therez a thin fabric in between right? take the fabric out & cut according to the shape. Make like 2 or 3 of that then place it with the metal piece into ur reel. Thatz wat I did to my shimano 2500, it work great~!!! Hope can help~!
