A Micro Stainless Steel Fishing Knobby Mag Brake Conversion Kit for dome sided Abu 5000, 6000 and 7000 series of reels. This kit requires the drilling of a 8mm hole in your side plate and is the smallest version that we do; it only stands approx 18mm off the side plate. It can be fitted in any position on the side plate adjacent to the centre pressing of the side plate, allowing level winds and ratchets to be retained if required.
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. Available with black spacer only.
Each unit is supplied with full fitting instructions and an online tutorial can be found here.
We can fit this product with 2 strengths of magnet; Standard (tournament and competent casters) and Improved (less experienced casters and general fishing use).
