Default Drag surface area ( Force)

Hi All, I wonder if anyone knows of a diagram or illustration that shows how the drag works on a fly reel. Going from the lightest setting to the heaviest.

The last one I remember seeing was for Waterworks-Lamson, but I've visited the web site and can't find nothing.

The other option is to get a formula for working the Drag force out for a given reel.

If anyone can help, then this would be fantastic.

Best Regards

Stuart

Heres the Lamson link http://waterworks-lamson.com/wp-cont...al_Details.pdf

Ross has really nice exploded views of most of there reels.
Heres their F1 reel Fly Reels, F1 - Ross Reels USA / Ross Worldwide

Hatch Reels has no diagram but has a good read http://www.hatchoutdoors.com/reels1/design-features#0

You will find out there are many different designs using different materials so there really isn't any simple way to make a formula. They all do the same basic thing which is squeezing multiple pieces of material together to create friction.
