    I changed out the old style drag washers for the new carbon fiber washers. Don't know how much of an immediate improvement it was, but they will last a lot longer than the old plastic style. Suppose you could replace bushings with bearings if you needed to. They're a pretty good reel out of the box, other than the drag washers I haven't fooled with mine other than to clean 'em. Good luck!
