Product Description

Microcast spool for 17 CALCUTTA CONQUEST BFS.
Equipped with a magnetic brake designed specifically for bait finesse fishing, this reel is perfect for finesse casting because it works very well with lightweight lures.

The Microcast Spool 17CNQ15R shallow slot model is recommended for mountain stream trout using 4-6 pound monofilament or PE line.
If the genuine brakes are left in place, they will work less effectively, so please add an optional neodymium magnet (φ4 x 1 mm).

The deep groove model Microcast Spool 17CNQ29R is designed to wind 10-12 pound line.
This spool is deeper than the genuine spool and is recommended for Texas rigs from 3.5 g to 9 g.

Please select the groove depth according to the tackle and line used.

Purchase and Installation of Additional Magnets

Shallow groove type 17CNQ15R requires magnet MAG φ4x1mm 8 pcs. set.
The microcast spool 17CNQ15R is shallower than the genuine spool, so the magnet as used on the genuine reel would be too far away from the spool, resulting in less effective braking.
Install the magnet (sold separately) over the magnet of the genuine brake.
If the brakes are too strong, please adjust the number of brakes to 7, 6, 5, and so on.
For deep-groove type 17CNQ29R, please use the genuine brakes as they are.

The bearing mounted on the shaft section of the 17CNQ15R is 740ZZ size.

Please note that the size of the bearing is different from that incorporated in the genuine spool.

The bearing on the perming cup side is the same size as the genuine 730ZZ (Inner diameter 3 mm x Outer diameter 7 mm x Thickness 3 mm).

Thumbing with the spool rim may cause the anodized aluminum to peel off due to friction.
In particular, thumbing should be done on the line winding surface of the spool.
When winding line onto the spool, applying too much tension can cause damage.
When winding a stretchy line such as nylon line, in particular, please use a looser tension.
