PRESET DRAG

The main purpose of the preset-drag is to set the strength of slippage of the drag system, that is:

  • with the clutch lever on the “strike” position the strength of slippage has to be at 25÷30 % of the line breaking load. The measurement could be easily done using a handle spring scale
  • with the drag lever on the “free” position the spool is free to wind.

The DUEL reel provides for a clutch lever position after the free one: this position corresponds to a minimum friction of the drag, enough to avoid the line unwinding.

It is important to remember that before turning the preset knob the clutch lever has to be in free position; with the clutch lever over the strike position it is difficult to move the preset-drag in any case.

Use the click only as an alarm. Leaving the click permanently may damage it.

CLUTCH LEVER

 

The clutch lever controls the slippage load of the spool from the free to the full position.

 

“FREE”
with the clutch lever on “free” position the clutch load will be zero, so the spool will be completely free.

“START”
with the clutch lever on “start” position the clutch load will be minimum, but enough to avoid line unwinding.

“STRIKE”
with the clutch lever on “strike” position the clutch load will be 25÷30 % of the line breaking load, about 3 lb with 12 lb line (12speedy), 5 lb with 20 lb line (20 speedy) and 7,5 lb with 30 lb line (30 speedy). Only pushing the strike button it is possible to go over the strike to the full position.

“FULL”
with the clutch lever on “full” position the clutch load will be the max load, about two times the strike value.

The slippage load increases as the line unwinds.
In half spooled conditions the load will double.

SPOOL CHANGE

By simply substituting the spool a “line change” is possible:

  • move the clutch lever to free position
  • take off the three screws on the left side
  • remove left plate; this operation may be facilited by moving the clutch lever to strike position and back again to free position

  • change the spool.
