Catch an Ele Or Rig then you’ll see why you need your drag set. I can’t remember the formula but it’s a certain percentage of your line breaking strain so lets say you had 10 kg line on and you wanted to set it to 7 kg drag one way to do it is fill a bucket of water that weighs 7kg’s hook your line to it and then walk some line out, now engage everything and walk backwards slowly with your rod up but not fully vertical adjust your drag till it starts coming off from the resistance of the bucket. Just remember if your rod tip is low the drag is less if it’s high its more.
