A Tournament Knobby Mag Brake Conversion Kit to convert the popular Penn 525 Slidey into a knobby mag version; also fits the Penn 525GS. This kit is of the screw in type and requires you to remove the ratchet and slidey brake assembly then open out the ratchet switch hole to 8mm to accomodate the knobby mag.
This is a popular conversion with tournament casters, particularly those in the US, but the all brass and stainless steel construction also makes it ideal for fishing. The single rare earth magnet winds off anti-clockwise approximately 0.8mm per turn of the knob; the magnet can be wound back approximately 10mm from the spool.
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. We can also fit this product with 2 strengths of magnet; Standard (tournament and competent casters) and Improved (less experienced casters and general fishing use). Please make sure you pick the correct options at the bottom of the page when ordering.
Each unit is supplied with full fitting instructions.
Please note that sideplate pictured is not supplied with this kit.
