Hello, I plan on upgrading the dartanium drag on my trinidad 14. So far no one make carbontex washer for this reel except at Kencustom reel where you have to send in your reel and the shop would cut the drag washers for you. Right now I just finished upgrading the drag to extreme smoothie drag washers. Drag is very smooth(use cal grease on washers) and have plenty of top end drag. I would like to know from your folk experience, how do these two washers compare in term of smoothness and durability in long battle. I plan to use the reel in Thailand for Giant Mekong Catfish which can weight any where from 40 lbs to 100+ lbs if you lucky. Three years ago I went there and landed a 126 lber in the Trinidad 14 with stock drag. Stock drag didn't even last one fish and one of the washer cracked....I do not want to have drag problem again and need your suggestion. Check out anglingthailand.com and check out the fish. It is like tuna in fresh water. Thanks.
