Precautions for use

Top: Stock spool Bottom: Microcast spool
When the spool is assembled into the reel, the spool will be slightly closer to the handle side, but this is not a defect because the spool is centered to match the stock spool.

Summing with the spool rim may cause the anodized aluminum to peel off due to friction.
Summing, in particular, should be done on the spool's thread winding surface.
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.

How to install the magnet brake
In the 16 Scorpion 70, the fixing bolt in the center of the brake dial is a hex-lobe (star shape) T10 size.
Please prepare a dedicated tool separately, since a hexagonal wrench or the like will damage the screw holes.

The magnet brake should be adjusted to a position where it does not contact the spool when the external dial is set to 6.
The external dials on Shimano reels are designed to allow the SVS Infinity to function flawlessly, but of course they do not take into account the functionality of the Aveil magnetic brake!
Therefore, even when adjusted correctly, the brake will be almost ineffective at 1 or 2 on the brake scale, but this is not a defect.
Please adjust within the braking range.
When mounting the magnet on the reel body, the screw of the magnet fixing part cannot be mounted because it touches the bearing support when screwed all the way in.
Also, even when installed properly, the magnet fixing portion cannot be screwed in to the deepest position.

Remove the side cover from the reel body, and remove the three fixing bolts attached to the frame B receiver assembly.

Remove the fixing bolt in the center of the dial and remove the brake dial and brake pipe gear.
The claw of the brake pipe gear is caught in the spiral cutout. If it does not come off, turn it to the left or right to remove the brake pipe gear.

There are two tabs on the inside of the magnetic brake. Insert the tabs into the slit in the frame holder B and screw it in. Screw them in to the deepest part.。

Install the dials so that the 4 on the external dial is in the position shown in the photo.
At this point, secure the dial with the fixing bolt.

Once you have reached this point, all you need to do is assemble it.
Fix the three points of the frame B receiving assembly with the fixing bolts.

After assembly, adjust the brakes.
Adjust the mechanical brake with the external dial at 1.
The mechanical brake is adjusted with the spool assembled and slightly loosened from the point where it no longer rattles from side to side.

After adjusting the mechanical brake, set the external dial to 6.
If the brake contacts the spool at this point, tighten the brake magnet and release it from the spool.
If contact is not made, loosen the magnet until it just barely makes contact and bring it closer to the spool.
In the case of the 16 Scorpion 70 series, the magnet should be screwed in about six and one-eighth turns from the position where the magnet section is removed.

*Photograph shows 15 Aldebaran 50 and MicrocastSpool ALD1518TR for better understanding of the positional relationship between the brake and the spool.
Imagine this condition and adjust the brakes.
