An added "tweaking" to allow more drag control on spools.
Although it's been years since I've bought mine, they are still in use every year. One thing I did to make them more efficient and easier to adjust (for drag purposes) is to add a washer on either side of the spool, with a large enough diameter to allow for adequate friction. You can then apply as much drag as you want and it eliminates some of the spool "wobble" when you loosen the wing nut for more free movement on fish that drop baits when they feel resistance.
It works decently for the price

Definitely worth it for the price. Comes with some line on the spool, which I had to replace. The wing nuts on the legs are cheap and tend to strip out. The drag works well. The flag design is prone to wind tripping and is sometimes hard to keep behind its catch.
