    I have Jack's washer in my Chronarch and cannot get it to lock.

    Not sure on your 2KG more like 20KG

    I have replaced the bearing 3 times, the reel it a total piece of garbage, good for the fresh, no good for the salt

    Leather gardening gloves cut into washers with 0025 rubbed into them will do the job.

    I've got a couple of Calcutta 250's and am not very happy with the drags either. I was an ABU man before and the way it looks I'll be going back to them. I've tried a few things but my son's ABU 5000 kill's it for drag pressure and smoothness.

    Big george have a look at the team diawa td-z103 see what you think. very nice. And I use daiwa and am not a writer can get 6kg over the rod out of a td103hsd I would use a chronarch but I have heard that you can only get 2kg of drag out of them anyway I dont think they let just anyone have a daiwa I have got many a barra from the timber at teemburra dam witch is as thick as faust. as for faust buy a pair of gloves and learn how to use you thumbs That or learn to cast with a tld30
