Because magnetic braking is only applied at maximum spool speed, the spool reaches a higher peak speed and remains spinning longer. As you start a cast, spool’s inductor cup is retracted from the magnets—so there’s no magnetic effect to slow the spool. Start-up is lightning fast. As spool approaches maximum speed, inductor cup automatically moves into the gap between the magnets to apply smooth magnetic braking and prevent spool overrun. As spool begins to slow, the inductor cup automatically retracts from the magnets—so the spool keeps spinning longer, unhampered by magnetic braking
