Just a quick question for yall. On your drag star, does it have the ability to move left and right? My friend has one and is concerned, but I think this is completely normal, as it doesn't affect performance at all. Any thoughts?

Maybe the guys with the similar Tatula could chime in? Does your Daiwa reel do this?

If I loosen the drag all the way, it does not move, but when set normally, it does.

Don't have a Zillion TWS, but have 3 older models.  Also probably another 20 Daiwas ranging from a TD-S to the PXL Type R including 3 of the T3 1016 models.  I've never noticed that kind of play.

Does just the drag star move, or is it the whole driveshaft? The first is weird. The second is a thing on some Daiwas; a little in and out play can be normal.

This reminds me of the Alphas F I bought.  The handle shaft moved in and out a bit on retrieve.  I believe it was caused by a bent washer.

Just the drag star moves back and forth. But you have to physically move it with your hands, it doesn't move by itself.

Has the reel been disassembled?

I took the drag off and put everything back on, and it still does it.

That's weird. The drag star shouldn't be able to move by itself. Probably harmless if drag pressure is sufficient.

you mean the drag star can be pushed slightly into the reel, and spring back? ya mine does that

The thing is held in place by a spring, and if you have the drag at lower settings, its going to leave space there.

If you have the drag tightened ALL the way down, and it still moves, then thats a problem. If the drag is backed off, its going to leave wiggle space between the star and the piece of metal that pushes against the drag discs.
