    Finally pulled the trigger on a Brute setup

    Just purchased the Brute Magnetics 350lb cup magnet that comes with 100' orange 550 paracord and threadlocker. Hope to show some finds soon.
    Does anyone here use this rig? Do you like it? I'm a newbie at the magnet fishing game so any tips or tricks are appreciated. I'm well aware of the safety precautions with these magnets but I'd like to know what you use to cap the magnet when not in use.

    I use 50 ft of rope and mine is braided poly, never had a need for the extra rope. You can get a plastic jar lid (like mayo) that will fit over the magnet end and then duck tape a metal washer to the outside of the lid. It will snap on and off and will provide protection. Good luck with ur new toy.

    Thank for the tip! It comes with the 100' length of paracord in the deal and I doubt I will need all that.

    Mayo, not Miracle Whip! My fiance loves that stuff but for me it's too tangy and overpowers my sammich.
    I will hold out on the name until I return from my first outing. Hopefully won't be calling it Bone-crusher

    I also made a cap using a pvc cap. You can use ur Miracle Whip lid but the brite red peanut butter lids retain that aroma and make your gear bag smell good.

    I was looking for a PVC end cap yesterday at Lowes and all I found was a 4" drain cap. Will that type still offer protection considering the drain holes on the flat part which is where the business end of the mag will rest?

    Would you guys show some pics of your rigs? I've got several industrial magnets and rope. I'm interested in trying my own bottom feeder.

    Hi, folks - Stupid question. If you latch onto an immovable metal object with that, do you need to exert more than 350# of force to free the magnet?

    If the object is under water and coated with rust and barnacles, probably not. If the entire surface area of the mag is attached to your car door or fridge, probably so. Most magnet sellers show the testing used to determine the pulling force of their magnets.

    I would think that would be a bit heavy. The cap I used was the 3 inch flat end cap. They also sell a cap that is rounded on the end but that would not work. I then took a large washer and taped it to the outside.
