ATD Drag System structural changes result in a smoother drag from the initial hookup since the initial drag inertia is reduced.

4-Max Drag

Most models have a maximum drag between 22 and 45 pounds, while line pick-ups per handle turn range from 39.90 to 47.0.

There is a max drag setting of 22 pounds on the tournament-style sailfish models and line pick-ups of 54.30 to 56.0 pounds.
