This is a new variation of the very popular Fishing Knobby Mag Brake Conversion Kit for Flat sided Abu 5000, 6000 or 7000 series of reels. The spacers are machined from coloured engineering plastic and the anodized adjuster knobs make them a very attractive kit. This kit requires the drilling of a 8mm hole in your sideplate and because of the plastic spacer, we advise glueing the spacer into position with an epoxy adhesive such as araldite. It can be fitted in any position on the sideplate adjacent to the graduated chome ring, allowing level winds and ratchets to be retained if required.
This pattern of conversion is a lot smaller and therefore less obtrusive than the tournament version. The single rare earth magnet winds off anti-clockwise approximately 0.8mm per turn of the knob and although those anglers with nimble fingers could wind the magnets off during the cast it is really designed to be set at the start of a fishing session and left.
Each unit is supplied with full fitting instructions and an online tutorial can be found here.
