    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.
