The groove depth is 1.8mm, which is specially designed for controlled fishing grounds and mountain streams.
Shallower grooves and TR specifications than previous models reduce the inertia of the outer diameter of the spool.
It is suitable for lightweight lures.
Enables casting with lighter force than conventional models even at the same weight.
This model is also compatible with magnetic brakes.
MicrocastBrake AMB2518 is a dedicated magnetic brake and MicrocastBrake AMB1520 and AMB1540 are not compatible.

It was developed for trout fishing in fishing grounds and mountain streams to catch regular size fish.
It is not suitable for intense fishing that requires durability.
If you wind a lot of thin nylon line, it will swell and shrink due to the water-absorbent properties of nylon line.
Also, the spool may be damaged. Please be careful.


Stainless steel E ring for Microcast spool shafts with inner diameter of 2.4 mm x outer diameter of 6 mm is included.

Also Avail "4P-Brake 25" can be installed in the same way.
