Default Drag Washers

I was cleaning my reels the other day and I accidently snapped a drag washer in my Shimano Torium 20. Can anybody recommend a place where I can order the piece? Or even better, what I can get to boost my drag capabilities (carbon washers or whatever I always see on here lol) and are fit for the torium 20? thanks guys

Upgrade to Carbontex drag washers.There's a place in CA that sells them.Do a search for Smoooooth Drag.You can order on line or by phone pretty quick shipping.

www.smoothdrag.com (760) 949 0271 I'd get their carbontex for the torium. Was like $20.00 for the set of four.

Hey guys. Just want to say thanks a lot for your help. I got the carbonex drag washers from lakeland and installed them according to Alan Tani's article you posted for me. It is a considerable difference, haven't been able to take it to a scale yet, but definitely a notciable difference increase in drag and smoothness. Once again, thanks for your help

u may have the ability to have heavier drag with the carbontex washers but a word to the wise - u start using more than 15 lb of drag on that torium and u will but your reverse pawl.

Yes, definitely don't lock down your drag, they won't hold up.
