    Hi
    Wonder if someone could help me, I'm after a 525 mag 2 mag adjustment dial to replace the monomag on the casting special, as it is a fantastic reel but the monomag gets in the way as you all know.
    Thank you

    Agree it digs in the wrist. Lucky I had a few old mags in a draw that I could replace the dial with. Makes a massive difference. The shop below may be able to help....

    It’s easy enough to replace. Make sure you keep the brakes in the same place when removing the dial and replacing with the new one.

    I rest the side plate in the palm of my hand and it gets uncomfortable by the end of a session and it digs in. So for £7 I'm changing it

    Give them their credit both Penn and akios have given solutions to the two main design complaints by anglers : Penn with the interchangable mag dials and akios with Thier optional power handle

    I've just sent one of my fathom Cs off to Chris Macey also, be interesting to see if the modified knob makes a difference!? I found the standard one just seemed to dig in after a while!

    I'm not sure penn gave the option!... Lads found the standard knobs fit, so swapped them!

    Think the issue now, is all the standard knobs that were meant for standard reel repairs have sold out!

    Si.

    Yes Si I think your right , but at least someone from Penn (seen in the linked post above) is directing customers to the alternative knobs ,rather then trying to tell them to buy the other reel instead. However you look at it it's never gonna please everyone,when conditions are right it's nice to be able to dial off the mags easily,but also nobody wants anything in the way.

    I just been into my local store and seen the new salist blue reels ,now those look the mutts
