Braking System

Centrifugal Braking is a physical, friction-based braking system. The faster the spool spins, the more braking pressure is applied. 

Magnetic Braking is an externally adjustable braking system. This system applies a constant force throughout the cast, determined by the magnets’ proximity to the spool.  

Reel Size

Reel sizes vary by manufacturer. To best understand the size of a spinning reel or casting reel, refer to the line capacity rating for the reel. Size standards are consistent across our reels.
