Now I need to rebuild the drag.
Hope this helps
Or - ' it's really very easy' - once you know how to do it . . . ;-)
If you really can't do it - if there is a Bass Pro Shop anywhere near your house - I'm sure the person(s) in the Fly Shop would be happy to help out.
the reel is spooled with 8 wt. fly line.
That said - you will get more backing with a 7 WT than with an 8 WT. Ditto for 8 WT vs. 9 WT.
I think you would have plenty of room for back for trout fishing. The size and weight of the reel would match well with most 8/9 WT rods, I think.
I don't know that I would use this reel for salmon, steelhead or bones . . . but, it might be just fine.
I am hoping to catch some trout in MT this summer to tax it a bit. But, I'm not holding out for any 15#'ers.
I hope this was helpful.
