I have a 200DHSV that the drag will simply not tighten down on, cranked all the way down I can stil pull drag with two fingers. I know SW can fix it, but I don't think I can get out of there for less than $75 which doesn't make sense on a reel when you can buy a perfectly functional new one for $125. I''ve always heard the term drag washers, is this something that could wear out and that I can replace myself?

Then secondary post I will likely have a disassembled 200DHSV in a box for sale soon.

sounds like the flex washers are installed wrong or aren't in at all. has it been like this the whole time you've had it? never heard of drag washers wearing so much you couldn't snug them down. you can get a schematic on the shimano site, then tear it down and compare.

When you take off your drag star wheel there are two concave washers underneath the shaft nut...they should oppose one another

In the diagram they are the drag spring washer

Excellent, I think you have diagnosed my problem, one of them is very slightly concave, the other is flat. So I am wondering if I have over tightened it to the point of making it flat. Another issue I see my star drag spacer has a concave face, is it supposed to? If yes should the concave piece be to the reel or to the handle. Last question, how tight do you tighten the star drag nut as you reassemble?

Thanks for all your help, I wish you were closer I'd just bring buy.

Ken

You should have two drag spring washers and above those should be a flat washer...your drag star spacer should concave up to get the reel handle space between it and the drag star to allow for drag adjustment without binding...the drag spring washers should oppose one another

If you keep your drags tightened all the time while the reels are not being used you will crush the drag washers making them ineffective...I would replace them with carbontex drag washers...very inexpensive and a great upgrade...very smooth drag

Getting excessive oil from bearing into the drag system can do that. Probably needs a through cleaning.

I'd reccommend having someone look at it if you can't figure it out from the advice offered here. I can do it for $10 plus any parts you may need. Wont be any where near $75 though. Probably $20-25 depending on if you wanted to go the carbontex route or not.

I have 4 of them. Had one that was just making a bad noise. Took it in and explained it to Southwest Parts and they fixed it for free and had it back to me by the next day. Bearing went bad.

Ken when you put the drag spring washers back on they should go like this ().
