[Avail] SHIMANO Microcast Spool 16ALD15R for 16 ALDEBARAN BFS
It is a microcast spool (custom spool) developed for SHIMANO BaitReel 16 ALDEBARAN 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 16ALD15R is suitable for fishing using the 4-6 lb line or PE 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 brakes are used, they will not be effective enough, so when using them, you can purchase a special neodymium magnet φ4 × 1mm set and add them to each of them for more comfort.

Regarding the Installation of Additional Magnets
To use the shallow groove type 16ALD15R, 8 auxiliary magnets φ4 x 1 mm are required.
Please use it after mounting the magnet sold separately on the magnet of the genuine brake.

If you use the spool rim for summing, the alumite may come off due to friction.
In particular, perform summing on the spool surface.
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.
