This is a good way to set your drag, it has less wear and tear on you, your equipment, and the fish.  With practice, you can get the feel for where you need to set the drag for each set up.

Another thing to remember is that when you set the drag on a full spool, it can be over double the resistance when line is cast out and the spool has less line on it.  Hope that makes sense.
Makes perfect sense. Same reason a reel casts better when properly filled.

Some people really do use pliers to crank down the drag star. I had to sand down a drag star last week on a reel where someone used pliers on it really messing up the drag star.

On some reels us service techs darn near need pliers to back off the drag on reels coming into the shop.

I just don't get it and never will!  ~b~

Well, I was kiddin'. Mostly. I run a tight drag on braid/flippin'/frog etc. applications. But when I get into a situation where the drag might be used (crankbait, close to the boat, stuff like that, I tend to take the reel out of gear and thumb it. But that's me.
