I have a Lew's LFS SSG1SHL that has a drag issue currently. I left the drag tightened down unintentionally and the washer has become fused to the main gear. I discovered this when I broke it down this weekend for a detailed cleaning. 

 

I've been looking online for carbon fiber drag replacements for this reel and the newer LFSs that I have. Does anyone have any experience in this area? I've contacted Lew's about obtaining a replacement rulon drag but haven't heard back from them.

I'd call lews and find out if the carbon fiber tournament pro drag will fit in your reel.

Will the carbon drag from the tournament pro fit the first gen. LFS reels? How much r the parts approx. I have 3 LFS I might want to convert.

The models with the thick white washer (rulon?) whatever they call it take a special kit.

Still waiting on a reply back from Lew's. I had asked in the email if they had carbon fiber drags available for the previous/current gen LFSs so we'll see what they say. I may take you up on that Delaware Valley Tackle.

Spoke with Lew's today. Great customer service. They are sending me out a new drag and drag spring so I can take care of it. I asked about a carbon fiber drag for the LFSs, to which he said it can be done, but would require a new main gear (with notches for the drag) and a new drag stack. I didn't ask about the cost but assume it wouldn't be worth it. New Rulon drag should be here next week.
