is the spool balanced from putting on line and is the spool floating to losely.wiggle it from side to side there only should be a fraction of movement 1/2 mm or so ,to much will make it noisey,to tight will knacker the bearings.if all else fails there might be some sand up in the egde of the spool race.they do tend to sing nicley when all is well.

the mag extra and the super mag are a bit more noisy than the original mag but still excellent fishing reels , try a small drop of yellow rocket fuel or some light oil on the bearings if it is a new reel sometimes they miss oiling a bearing ... we are all only human after all !!:clap3: :notworthy
