Ultimate Upgrades by Bryan Young
Convert your 3-stack to the Ultimate 5+1 Drag System
"Most of these reels have a drag capacity of 6-9 pounds. This should increase your drag to a comfortable 10-15 pounds of drag, theoretically. I haven't had a chance to line my Penn 259 to test out the drag system, but is should work very similarly to my other Ultimate Upgrade Drag Kits.
The kits come with 5 in gear Carbontex drag washers, 1 Carbontex undergear drag washer, 3 metal keyed washers, 2 metal eared washers, and a new belleville. Due to the different reel side plate spacings, if the belleville does not fit within the side plate, I recommend installing it between the spacer and the star for a more gradual increase in drag pressure.
