There is a difference between a star drag and a lever drag, and there is a difference between a carbon drag washer and a dartanium drag washer, but a reel could have both a star drag and a dartanium washer. 


Shimano at some point switched to the dartanium II drag washers, which are more like carbonex, but for whatever reason they still called them dartanium. It's pretty confusing, as is the fact that you have to upgrade the drags on the Takota reels right out of the box or they will start sticking and slipping after they get wet a few times or after a few good runs from a big fish.


I haven't tried the new Takotas, but my Diawas are great right out of the box.
