Thread: Lamson Konic Drag Knob

  1. #1

    Default Lamson Konic Drag Knob

    Just received a lightly used Lamson Konic 1.5 in the mail I bought off ebay. When you loosen the drag all the way the drag knob seems to stick way out, and wobble to the point of seeming fragile... anyone else notice this with this reel? thanks. - Z

    Can you pop the spool off?

    Hi Zman,

    Since you would always have some level of drag on is it really a problem. I don't know, just asking.

    Zman, I have a couple of Konics and I am pretty certain that what you are describing is typical with these. I have had a Konic 2 for about a year and a half and have not had any issues with it at all. I wouldnt sweat it but if you think its abnormal call Lamson, they are great to deal with.

    Mosca: Yep. Everything works perfectly on the reel.

    Frank: no its not really a problem.. I was just curious as to why they would design it that way.. were you to keep the drag fully loosened it feels as though it might break off..

    dub: good to hear.. again, i was just curious as to whether or not this was normal.. ive not used the reel yet, but am lookinf forward to it.


    thanks for takign the time to respond gents! - Zack

    Hey Zack,
    I checked out a new Konic 1.5 at the shop today. That's normal to have the drag knob sticking out. To be reallistic, you will never use the reel with it backed out all the way. Your reel is should be in fine working order.
