Practice and patience.
It is best to start with 2 shoes in the one position that are opposite one another. You can also control the rotation of the spool by applying magnetic force to the spool with the dial located on the outside of the palming side-plate.
move brakes with your fingernail
to check if the system is working see how long the spool spins when set to 10 then 0 when you spin an empty spool with your finger
don't cast into the wind until you train your thumb
start at max braking and slowly disengage the brakes until you find your best distance without backlashes. You just have to play with it. Every lure you use will cause the reel to perform differently.
Magnets at max
back off on the magnets until you start getting a mess

Can someone explain to me what happened to the other 3+1?
Or is this the # of balls in each bearing?
