    Does anybody know why my Iron Quantum reel would not have enough drag even when I tighten it down as far as I can? I use mono on it, and its almost brand new because I haven,t used it much since I had it.

    Steve, I don't know anything about the reel you are referring too, but I do know alittle about reels. It sounds like your drag washers are wore and need replacing. If it is a baitcasting reel with a star drag the washers should be below the handle of the reel. As far as where to get replacement drag washers I have no clue on that, you may be able to fabricate some though. Vern
