How to set the drag on a lever drag reel

 I made a brief video on how I set up the drag on lever drag reels. Is there anything you guys do differently?

 I reckon you need to say how important it is to set the LD to freespool before making any adjustments. It lmost seems like you are saying that the strike and sunset positions are independantly adjustable and for most reels this is not the case and each setting are is dependant on the other. You can either choose the max drag or the strike but not both....

 It's never too cold to go fishing here in NZ, I actually prefer fishing in winter because there are less boats on the water. I already have a video on my jetski setup on my channel if you want ot have a look
