after tweeking it and messing about with it i got it set up just right for myself and added another 50 yard's or so to my distance, ihave a penn 535 which im not impressed with but this super mag is a different kettle of fish with which im most impressed.
the super mag has 6 magnets rather than4 and it also has abec 5 bearings in it
funny you say that about easier to tame, i think i can get more distance and less birdies with my mag than my supermag, might not have it set up right at the moment though
I got my super mag form the same place for the same price, he is the cheapest around, Daiwa sandstorm 13m rods going for £85 I noticed.
How the hell do you get them apart I undo the screws and the side just looks like a one piece mounting.
I'd love to take some more braking off of it as it seems a bit slow.
