    I know several folks replace the gummed up drag with different material. Cork being one type. Anything else or ideas come to mind. I'm going to attempt to do a reel on my own and was looking for suggestions

    The 20/30 should have the same drag material as the TLD 2 speed model reels. The silicone based drag (gummy stuff) was only in the larger sizes.

    I am not sure if we will be doing service at the show this year. I am still waiting to hear about that.
    Send me a PM with your email and I will send you the schematic.

    The 20-30 does have a silicone backed pressure plate that meltdowns over time and turns your reel into a useless gummy mess. The drag washer is not your problem. I make the part you need and will send it to you along with pictured instructions for free. They are great reels with one small flaw that is easily fixed. I doubt cork will work, my part is made of high strength silicone. Email your address I'll send you the part if you still need it.
