How often do you check your drag?
After reading yet another tale of the big one that broke off, I'm just wondering how often everybody checks the drag on their reels. With the decent drags available nowadays on even moderately priced reels, I don't understand why so many people report break-offs, unless they just don't take the time to set the drag properly, or don't know how to do it. The other possibility is improper adjustments being made while fighting a fish.
