A Micro Stainless Steel Fishing Knobby Mag Brake Conversion Kit for Flat sided Abu 5000, 6000 or 7000 series of reels. This kit requires the drilling of a 8mm hole in your sideplate and is the smallest version that we do; it only stands approx 15mm off the side plate. It can be fitted in any position on the sideplate adjacent to the graduated chrome ring, allowing level winds and ratchets to be retained if required.
This kit requires the drilling of a 8mm hole in your sideplate and is the smallest version that we do; it only stands approx 15mm off the sideplate. With a 316 stainless steel knob and spacer it's a very unobtrusive and practical way to add magnetic braking to a favourite fishing reel. 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.
This kit can also be supplied with a clockwise wind off to special order (please allow ten days for dispatch). Please leave a note at checkout if you require a clockwise wind off.
