AbstractA centrifugal brake for a baitcasting reel has contact pieces in the form of collars slidably mounted on rods extending radially of a spool axis to be revolvable with rotation of a spool, and an annular braking member disposed outwardly of a locus of revolution of the collars. The braking member is attached to an inner periphery of a case or cover detachably attached to a reel frame. The collars are movable under a centrifugal force into contact with the braking member. The braking member has an inclined surface formed on an inner periphery thereof. The inclined surface is opposed to the spool and shaped to diverge toward the spool. In the course of attaching the case or cover to the reel frame, the inclined surface pushes the collars down toward the spool axis to facilitate a case attaching operation.
