    I Just reciently purchased a 2006 model ABU 6500c3 the one with the carbon matrix drag washers and Flathunter says the new drag systom is the BOMB(haven't had the chance to use mine yet) And I was wondering if you can upgrade the older style ABU 6500c3s to the new style carbon matrix drag washers? Do any of our members know if this is possiable and if so is it a straight across the board swap? Thanks Your Friend and BOC brother From Iowa. J.D.Straka

    I don't use or repair baitcasters so I'm not really sure. However I would think you could upgrade them seeing what they are the same modle just different years. The dargs may be a bit different but should be interchangeable.

    About a ten minute job. If I can do it anybody can. The carbon drags do make a difference. I think you will like them. Take a look at the tutorial under reel repair.
