If you guys have any Lever drag reels with sticky drags, Shimano makes a product called Drag Lube that works great.Sometimes trolling around your reels take baths and you can get a salt build up on the fiber washer.You can feel it when you are setting drags or when a good fish is pulling line.It feels kind of jerky.Just take the washer out,lightly touch it on some fine sand paper,then smear this lube on both sides of the washer and let it sit over night.The next day remove the excess with a dry rag and re-install it.It feels better than new,like velvet,and it waterproofs it for the entire season.
