I have bought the above from a UK supplier (the only one over here) and asked them upon purchase to change it to a left hand wind - which they obliged.

I notice that there is a degree of play on the knurled drag adjustment, prior to the softest setting being affected. When I adjust the drag from its lowest extreme, there is a 1/6th degree of turn before anything engages and the knob wobbles a fraction before engaging.

Does any forum member use the same reel and experienced the same issue.

Its not a real problem but I wonder whether I ought to take it up with the supplier or Tibor.

Alternatively can I correct the problem myself?

Thanks for any assistance you may be able to give me

My Riptide is the same way. The spool and drag knob are very loose until you give it a turn.

Once engaged however, it is the ultimate :devil:
