Give Gary Caulfield a pm with the serial number of the reel and i am sure he can confirm with you which model it is exactly. Also tell him where you ordered it from.

the reel u bought should be clearly labeled.
the 525 mag orginal says 525 mag on it, the mag T says 525 mag on it but has a knobby end plate.
the next reel was the supermag and was also clearly labeled.
the mag xtra and supermag xtra are also clearly labeled, and the supermag xtra has the new knobby endplate.

hope this helps, as i cant get the pics to see the reel.
PS

Which ebayer did you buy from mate as theres a guy on there that sells reconditioned Abu´s without stating so.

Has your reel got a grinding mark on the top of the reel seat?

What has been said here is correct.

The Supermag Xtra has the new disc control endplate with the clicker as well.

The Mag Xtra has the standard endplate, with the spare bearings & magnets inside the box.

Both reels have crossbar labels detailing the model, and have boxes with labels detailing the model.

The Supermag Xtra normally sells around £150 I believe, so it would SEEM that you have been sent an original 525 Mag, without the packets of bearing & magnets, but sold as a discounted Supermag Xtra.

Any problems, PM myself or my brother Gary Caulfield

You have bought the old (last Year) model Supermag - they retailed (at Veals) for £125. The Supermag Xtra retails for about £150 - and as described has a knob instead of a slider for the mags. It would appear that you have paid fora Supermag Xtra but recieved a Supermag.

Just to confuse you completely Penn now also sell a Mag Xtra that comes with two extra magnet and upgraded bearings that you can ft yourself - if you don't fit them you have the equivelent of the old 525Mag and if you do you have the equivelant of the old Supermag.

Big_Jay,

As David Caulfield has pointed out, it seems that the item was not as described. Have you contacted the seller about this problem and, if so, what was the result?

If he's just made a mistake and puts things right, then fair enough. If not, then please post his Ebay username to help prevent others from being ripped off.

Cheers,

John

firstly it aint from Ebay....It's from a established tackle dealer ..www.seatackle.co.uk and also they go by the name of tacklesupermarket.com

iv had the super mag xtra sent out to myself free of charge due to they sent me the wrong reel at a high price, also they sent me costers that were diff colour and also they Fu*ked up on the size of hooks i orderd...just gets better aye...

so i now have a brand new super mag for sale 80.00

Aren't they expecting the Supermag back? I'd double check before you flog it!
