- Twin Disk Drag System
This system uses two drag washers that surround a floating drag plate to effectively double the drag surface over traditional drag systems. On a traditional drag system, a drag plate is pressed against the drag washer to create drag. On the Twin Disk Drag System, the drag washer is suspended between two drag plates. This utilizes both sides of the drag plate and gives twice the drag surface of a single disk system.
