Default shimano trinidad drag

I have a Shimano Trinidad 20 that is about 2 yrs old. I've taken it apart and oiled it several times. I've never fooled with the drag system though. Now I can't get as much drag out of it as I used to. When I lock the drag all the way down, I can still pull drag with my hand - this wasn't the case before. Any suggestions.

Send it in to Shimano and tell them about the drag problem. They are very good about making their reels right.

You probably got some oil on the drag washers. Those drag washers are paper thin and will break if you breath on them too hard. Have new washers ready before you attempt to clean the old ones. They also don't last too long.
