A tournament casting and fishing multiple mag brake conversion kit for flat sided ABU 5500 / 6500 reels. These work on a similar principle to the mag units in the 1980's Abu Ultra mags, a disc carrying 2 rare earth magnets slides on a redesigned speed bush and is controlled by a knobby mag adjuster, gives all the advantages of multiple magnets without the bearing compression worries of a centre mag unit. The speed bushes have been redesigned so that they automatically centre your spool when fitted and they cannot move laterally, adjustment is 0.8mm per turn of the knob making an extremely user friendly conversion for both the tournament field and fishing.

The kit is simple to fit, although you will have to drill an 8mm hole in your sideplate to hold the brass knobby housing if your reel does not already have a ratchet pin hole and another hole has to be drilled in the mag disk once the knobby adjuster has been fitted. The unit is manufactured from brass and stainless steel with a light, strong acrylic mag disc and marine grade stainless steel knob and spacer so there will be no corrosion problems with this kit.

Each unit is supplied with full fitting instructions and additional information can be found here.

Please note that this kit may be supplied with a different colour disc to the one shown. The sideplate in the picture is not supplied with the kit.
