An affordable and easy-to-install upgrade for the original (pre-June 2022) Tsurinoya Dark Wolf Ultra bait finesse reel (compatible with other reels that utilize the same style braking system).
This kit includes four extra N48 (high strength) magnets appropriately sized to maximize the braking performance of the Dark Wolf Ultra reel to increase braking consistency across a broad spectrum of lure weights. Place the 1mm depth magnets at each pivot arm’s “free” end on top of the stock magnet and the 0.5mm depth magnets on top of the adjacent magnets. No tools are required to implement this upgrade.
We want to thank Paul from the Fishing Discoveries Blog for coming up with and testing the idea of this magnet upgrade kit. Paul put in some great work during the testing stages, fully detailed in his blog: Fishing Discoveries: TSU Dark Wolf Ultra.
NOTE: Neodynium magnets offer strong magnetic force but are brittle, take care when removing and adding magnets not to let them “smack” into each other, which can cause them to crack.
