Go direct.
Smooth Drag the producer of Carbontex washers will air mail your order in a letter :grin:
Cal's drag grease comes the same way.
Should mention Cal's drag grease can be used as a reel grease, but not the other way around.

Low cost, fast and efficient, exactly what you want from a company, and going direct gives you the advantage of dealing with the inventor (who incidentally is a lady).

Equally, by supporting black dog I help to ensure he is still in business when I need an emergency spare abu part in a hurry. :thumbs:

Never had any noticeable increase in dropped takes Duncan?
I don't think it makes a jot of difference tbh, most pike anglers fish so crude with big leads, and heavy braid which will have quite a lot of water pressure on it, that I doubt a bit of resistance will have any effect.

Nothing beats the sound of an abu ratchet screaming to get the heart racing :thumbs:

Something similar to a big trout taking a deadbait.
