I bought 4 of these new this year 2 for riggers and 2 for leadcore. The two i just recently got for rigger rods are giving me trouble. I loaded them with 50 lb braid and 15 lb Big Game for a leader. The first trip out I had almost no drag with one of them. Yesterday I had almost no drag with both and no clicker while they were creeping out line. So bad I could not begin to load the rods. I messed with them and had a slight improvement of maybe 1.5-2 lbs of drag max. I went into my shop this morning to remove the line and return the reels.But, this morning both reels seeded to work fine. I am planing a trip to Lake O in August. I will try them again but I dont want any issues returning these if I drag my feet. I also am concerned they may not work properly when I go on my trip.

Have any of you had issues with new Accudepth reels? 

I did find a site that sells upgraded drag washers but I am reluctant to tear these new reels apart and chance voiding the warrentee

Sounds like your braid might be slipping in the spool. Did you use tape, mono backing, or other technique to better secure braid to spool?

I think your right that does sound like the problem now that you mention it. And no I did not put tape or mono backing. My bad
