tarpon Calcutta 700C and B

so I've got a couple 700's and a Torium, I'm having to crank the star tight tight, to get desired drag. Is this because of compressed drag washers, and time for new ones?? I disassembled and cleaned them last year.

More likely your spring washers are flat or installed incorrectly. They should be slightly curved and re-assembled like this () or this )(, but not like this (( or )). You can easily rebend them and then make sure they are installed correctly. Hope this helps.

tarpon flat

just did a complete tear down, cleaning, relube, and reassembly of my Torium 20, the washers are flat, will they hold if rebent, or should they be replaced?? The Calcuttas are next, I'm sure they will be flat as well.

You can rebend them with a couple pairs of pliers, or a bench vise and a crescent wrench, or a vice grip and the edge of a work bench. It is stainless so it's fairly pliable. Over time under pressure they just flatten out.

will do, good thing is, only requires removing the handle to access the washers. But if I'm feeling energetic when they are in front of me, may get a through cleaning and re-lube.
