    I have Torque 25n and 12 star drag. 25n is my go to reel for 30 or even 40lb setup if I don't need a 2 speed lever drag. 25n has 65lb braid all to the top. 12 has 300yard of 50 lb braid. Both reel has open shield spool bearing with TSI 321 oiled. My 25n can freespool for 2 min 30sec or so, but on 12 I can only freespool for 50 second. Is the freespool difference coming from spool diameter and the amount of line on the spool, as referring to momentum?
    Thx in advance.

    Weight. The spool on the 25N is considerably heavier then the 12. So it carries more intertia.

    I noticed the same thing with my Trq star drags. Decided to weight the spools one day all are filled with braid.
    Trq 25n spool 112g
    Trq 15 spool 66g
    Trq 12 spool 57g
