    I have an Abu BG9000 that the spool becomes harder to turn the more you crank down the drag. any solutions out there?

    Have you had the reel apart? If so Maybe the drag is installed wrong. You could try the library for help.

    I had the same problem when I recently upgraded a 650 plus with the smoothie washers and found I had been sent the wrong washers.
    The first washer is smaller and the one I was sent was too large and was binding the spool.

    PM me and I have another solution from a reel repair shop I can direct you to.
