Default How many #'s of Drag can be gotten from a 113H?

I have two 113H's that I have converted to accurate frames etc. I also upgraded the drag washers to ones by mfg. by Smooth Drag. What is the max drag that I can reasonably expect out of this reel. I want to bottom fish with 80 lb braid and was hopeing for at least 20+ lbs of drag.

I would think if you go over alantani's posts you should see more than that maybe up to 28#

I tried them and wouldn't exactly call it an "upgrade"...

As Alan Tani and others have opined ... hoped you saved the HT100 washers . I use Shimano drag grease on the HT100s and it makes them smooth, chatter free, reliable, and powerful.

I also would have sowrn that Alan once advised not to set the drag on that reel at over 20 pounds drag for a prolonged fight ... ?

What is that all about? I was just mentioning what I put the reel together with, nothing more. I feel it is important to inform the people you are asking a question of to give them all the information. I upgraded the reel to be more ridgid and handle more stress and drag pressure. So, what is the max drag that this reel can handle? Is it better to go with the HT 100's that are greased? (notice I did not mention a MFGR, lest I be labled as a ?



BTW, Roll Tide!
