An ABU Flat Sided Slim Profile Knobby Mag Brake Conversion Kit for Flat sided Abu 5000, 6000 or 7000 series of reels. This kit is of the screw in type and requires you to drill an 8mm hole in the side plate of your reel.
With the knob and spacer made from lightweight aluminium it makes it an ideal choice for the tournament field and the single rare earth magnet winds off anti-clockwise approximately 0.8mm per turn of the knob; when spun up the reel spool will spin for approximately 15 seconds with the brake full on and anything up to 2 minutes at full off.
The slim profile of the kit also makes it easy to fit the kit close to the centre cap of the side plate without fouling the cap with the knob.
Each unit is supplied with full fitting instructions and an online tutorial can be found here.
We are now able to offer this mag conversion with a left-hand thread where the brakes can be wound off in a clockwise direction at the same price as the standard version - left-handed units are made to order so please allow 7 - 14 days for delivery.
Please make sure you pick the correct option at the bottom of the page when ordering.
