i would guess about 3 pound maybe four --as a rule i do not dial it up while fighting roosters. As a rule not palm the reel much either i add extra pressure with my fingers on the line. I have fished rooster with 5 pounds of drag but they shake their heads quite a bit and i pulled some hooks--so less drag and touch more bend in the rod than i like and pulled less hooks.

If it is a Toro i dial up the drag to exterminate and point the rod right at the fish and after the first run most of their starch is gone.
