From what Ive figured out is that the spool has little magnets mounted on the side as well as the side plate. If they have an adjustment knob on the side like some of my quantum bass reels, the higher the number the closer the magnets are. Hope this helps and if im wrong please someone post the right answer.
Dave, this will explain Lenz's Law.
Basically, the super high speed rotation of the metallic spool in a magnetic field causes an opposing resistance force on the magnetic field and slows the spool down.
Faster the spool rotates, stronger the field.
Slower the rotation, the weaker the field.
What reel are you thinking about magging?
I've been thinking about doing a Penn 310GTI and an Abu 6500.
For the magnets, Rare Earth Magnets . Must use rare earth magnets for the strongest induction.
As for magging the reel, basically build up a foundation on the sideplate so the magnet is within 1mm of the spool. When you have the magnet and reel behaving the way you want it, just epoxy it place.
An easy way to find the sideplate/spool distance, is to take a piece of clay and place it between the sideplate and spool, then measure the resulting thickness with a micrometer.
They ship from Hong Kong, so allow 2-3 weeks to receive your order.. I've ordered LED's and electronics from them 5-6 times without problem. It's hard to believe that they can send stuff to you from overseas for under $2 shipping included, but they are for real.
