Many of Hardy's best-selling reels have a spring and pawl drag design. We recommend
that you change the springs every three to four years for moderate use, sooner if you
are an active angler. It is a good idea to keep a back-up "C Pack" for each reel in your inventory. "A"
Packs contain spring & pawls. "C" Packs contain springs, pawls, lineguard screws, latch screws,
and latch spring. "D" Packs contain check wheel caps for the back of spare spools to
keep grease contained. "E" Packs contain reel counter balances, which are recommended
for the bigger salmon and steelhead reels.
