Naw bro, drag had nothing to do with it. It's because my line was frayed, my knot was weak, my line guides are frayed and it wasn't a bass lol.
With correct set drag I have landed some really big carp on 6 and 8 pound test. I posted pics of them earlier. I primarily UL or finesse fish, so having my drag set correctly is crucial. That being said I don't know why people like catching carp, even giant ones on a UL are kind of boring fights, all they do is run. No jumping or thrashing like a bass.
I believe someone earlier said a 2 lbs bass is capable of snapping 10# test line. (Assuming it's not frayed or a weak knots) if that's the case, I don't see why someone wouldn't think having no drag wouldn't play a part.
Anyways thanks for your logical response.
