I heard on the grapvine that there just isnt room to fit a decent set of gears into the slideplate of the abu mag. If you have a look at the size of the gear box on a slosh or 525 then youll see what i mean. You can get em but they wont last long-stripped in no time.
Im not saying this from experience mind, but if you think about it then youll know what i mean. Also if there is plenty room then why wouldnt Abu fit them themselves? The retreive ratio is one of the main reasons why people buy a 525 or a slosh over a Abu.

I'm not sure about this bigman as the Abu 6500 C4 has the 6.3:1 gear ratio as standard. The hanldle side plate on the 6500 C4 is exactly the the same size as the side plate on the Mag Elite so I dont see why he couldn't just exchange whatever's inside the C4 reel as far as gears go to the Mag Elite.

did you fit them yourself? are they pretty easy to fit? i've taken the gears out to service the reel so know what i'm doing, just wondered how the gear set come.
