A Deluxe Stainless Steel Centre Mag Brake Conversion Kit now with matching stainless steel end cap for Flat sided Abu 5500 and 6500 reels with an Ultracast spool. This kit runs two 6mm x 3mm rare earth magnets which will provide all the stopping power you will ever need and requires the removal of the existing speed bush, click ratchet and white nylon cog on your reel.
The kit is simple to fit, although you will have to drill a 3mm hole in your sideplate to hold the brass locating pin if your reel does not already have a ratchet pin hole. The magnets wind off clockwise with approximately 4 turns from full on to full off and move approximately 1mm per turn of the quality chromed brass knob.
If you wish to convert this kit to use your existing chrome end cap simply drill a 6mm hole through the centre of your existing end cap and use it to replace the stainless steel end cap that is fitted to the kit. Please note that it is important that you drill the end cap central otherwise it will effect the smooth operation of the mag kit.
Each unit is supplied with full fitting instructions.
