Variable/Magnetic brake system


Recommended Posts

When it comes to baitcasters, the spool tension knob slows the spool throughout the cast while the braking system slows the spool towards the end of the cast. If you are new to baitcasting, it's sometimes best to turn many of the brakes on. As you get more experienced you can turn almost all of them off and just mess with the spool tension knob from time to time.

Heres the deal.. anti backlash is a combination of both the clutch(knob under the break) and the other system, which ever it may be. It will depend on lure weight, what type lure it is, and wind direction.

for instance.. a spinnerbait casted into the wind.. I'll have just about all of them on and the clutch really light.. for a crankbait with the wind, I'll have them all off and the clutch light...

I'll change both knobs hourly if needed, depending on wind and lure weight and type of lure.
