The knobby mags aren't for everyone but if by not getting on with it your finding your not able to control the reel there are ways to fix that rather than write off the reel.

Like Russ says there are ways and means with the Turbo first. If it's been monomagged then it is probably also running ceramic bearings and is set up to run very very quick.

For starters try some thick engine oil in the bearings, this should slow it down to a more controllable speed. You might also be able to adjust the magnet so it sits closer to the spool thus giving more braking. You could also try replacing the bearings with ordinary Daiwa ones, again this should slow the reel down and make it more controllable.

Plenty of things to try before ditching the reel for a new one.
