[Avail] SHIMANO Microcast Spool 17CNQ15R for 17 CALCUTTA CONQUEST BFS
It is a micro cast spool (custom spool) developed for Shimano bait finesse bait reel 17 Calcutta Conquest BFS released by Avail.
This model is compatible with Shimano's original magnet brake, FTB (finesse tune brake system) brake.
The shallow groove model Microcast Spool / 17CNQ15R is suitable for bait finesse using the 4 to 6 pound line and PE line and mountain stream trout fishing using the filament line.
This spool has a shallow groove specification compared to the genuine spool, and due to its structure, the distance between the magnet brake and the spool is larger than that of the genuine spool.
As a result, if the genuine brake is used, the effect will not be sufficient, so when using it, it will be more comfortable if you purchase a special neodymium magnet φ4 × 1mm set and use it by adding each.

* The numerical value above is the result of measuring by winding fluoro-carbon line up to the edge of spool rim.
There is a possibility that anodized color finish can be rubbed off by thumbing on the spool edge as you use. It's better to thumb on fishing line on the spool as much as you can.
When winding the line on the spool, applying too much tension may cause damage.
Especially when winding a stretchy line such as a nylon line, loosen the tension before use.
