Out of the blue I got an e-mail from Bob Hulme of Abu Garcia today - the new drag washers are going to be out very soon.

Hi Jerry,

We have the new washers in stock for the 6500's.
The new washers #1116906 replace the (3)#20907 washers. The base washer under the drive gear #13169 stays the same.


I'm expecting a major upgrade over the old washers. I really expect an upgrade over the smoothies we're all replacing those old washers with. Only makes sense to outdo someone competing against you for parts to your own product.

I'll have a set in my sweaty little palms in a few days, hopefully before I leave for Montauk this Sat. God willing some large will start showing up soon and I'll be able to work em out.

I'll let you all know what I think.
