you can.. you just have to preset the reel. so you put your wind on on and use a scale and pull it and turn the star drag up until your pulling with 30 lb of pressure to make the line slip. now you have your star drag set to 30 lbs of pressure , you know that. now when you drop you use free spool and when you retrieve your retrieving with 30 lbs. the 18-20 lbs is more of a feel thing. so the most important is making sure you have that 30-32 lbs of drag to set the hook hard into that fish. then after that rod is doubled over tight for a minute or so. now you can lower your drag down and have a nice bend in the rod and let the rod do the rest of the work.
THERE YOU GO. STAR DRAG DRAG FORCE ON CHECK!
