Which drag system is better? The carbon matrix or the star wheel drag?
You meaning by star wheel the thing that you turn around to tighten the drag? If so it controls the pressure to the carbon matrix drag system.
So what exactly is so good abou the carbon matrix?
It will displace heat much faster. You have to think about drags kind of like brakes on a car. Heat is bad! You want that drag to be smooth and cool.
Some cheap drags actually use plastic washers; obviously, these aren't going to hold up under severe use.
Carbon Matrix is a postive improvement. This is the route to go if you have a choice. I hope this helps.
They say the Carbon Matrix is a better drag.
