This product is a dedicated precision instrument for measuring the line tension and drag brake force of the fishing reel. The drag checker makes the drag and knot tying setup easy and quick.

Until now, there had been only two ways to manage the drag setting.Use anglers senses according to experience and intuition or measure using a spring balance.By the former setting, the value changes each time because it is not the numeric information.  Though the measurement is numeric, using spring balance is very inconvenient because it takes more than two people and a wide space.Being different from above cases, Drag Checker enables us to measure as precise number at any point of line by oneself.  Because it has “a recording system” to show the measured value, the drag force can be checked even while fishing by a single person easily.Since the drag checker can be used even after throwing a rig in, it became possible to set drag depending on the change of the line amount left on a reel.The ideal drag setting depends on a tackle balance or individual fishing style.Drag Checker is the world-first tool to express drag function in numerical form and  to maximize the performance of angler.
This is the must for serious anglers. About 30% of line strength is said to be appropriate drag force. All measurement is by metric KG.
  • DC-2001 up to 1kg

  • DC-2005 up to 5kg 
  • DC-2015 up to 15kg
DRAG MEASUREMENT
As you know drag prevents the fish from breaking the line. The drag checker makes the drag setup easy and quick. 
How to measure
  1. Bridge the line from the reel as shown in the picture.
  2. Pull the line slowly, straight toward the arrow.
  3. Read the needle at the start of drag.
Measurement is easy because the needle display remains even after releasing the tension.
ROD DEFLECTION MEASUREMENT:
This measurement helps you understand how much deflection the rod will have for the amount of given force.
How to measure:
  1. Set the tackle. Then fix the tip of the line.
  2. Install the anti-deflection wire on the main body.
  3. Set the drag checker at this position.
  4. Bend the rod to the desired deflection to measure.
  5. Check the measurement value.
Be aware that the values change depending on the angle of the rod. When you measure the drag by fixing the drag checker on the line from the rod, the measurement value will differ from the measurement in front of the reel. Be sure to make comparisons.
OTHER MEASUREMENTS
As indicated, drag checker measures the strength of the line or line lashing.
  1. Set the line on the pulley using the same method as the drag measurement.  
  2. Pull the line from both directions and cut the line.
  3. Read the scale at the time of cutting.
It is important to pull the line slowly to prevent impact movement of the night line.
Measuring the weight of the fish:
You can also weigh the fish caught with the drag checker.
  1. Without taking off the fish needle, set reader on the drag checker.
  2. Dangle the fish slowly.
  3. Read the scale.
The drag checker is a new type of measurement device with which fisherman can obtain the data they could not easily collect in the past. We can expect further possibilities with this device.
