Smoooooth Drag from the USA, manufacture Carbontex Carbon fibre drag washers. The premium quality, Carbontex drag washers are a new generation of carbon drag washers. The high quality carbon fibre drag material is the perfect combination of unrivalled stopping power, silky smoothness and outstanding consistency, with a high heat tolerance. Carbontex drag washers are the best upgrade in drag washers, available, try them and you will not be disappointed. They enable a greater drag pressure to be applied to the line and can be used dry or with a very light coating of Cal's drag washer grease.
We recommend Cal's Drag washer grease for lubricating the drag washers and reel components, of which we keep in stock.
Jim's Reel Shop import the Carbontex drag washers and have assembled kits for the first time, for the original late nineteen seventies/early nineteen eighties Abu Cardinal 54, and 354 models, which are still a very popular reel with Barbel, Carp and Pike anglers in the UK. Jim's Reel Shop have packaged sets of three genuine Carbontex drag washers to replace the old, original plastic drag washers, which are not very good and let the reels down.
