bj, it looks like a supermag to me, the only difference with the old 525 and a supermag is the supermag will have a silver handle a couple of extra magnets and ceramic bearings. they both have the slidy switch for the magnets. the only way to tell for sure is to have a look how many mags are inside. you can get a knobby mag which will have a knob for the mags instead of the slidy.

I agree looks like an original supermag to me.........deffo not a new supermag xtra cos they've got a knob instead of a slidy.............Maybe not what you though you was getting but still a cracking reel........then again maybe not for £140 :blink:

It looks the same model supermag as mine bought mine Dec 05 for £105 when they were first out.
Mine still says Penn mag not supermag as at the time they were rushed to despach the reels and didnt have the correct decals for them,was ment to pick them up but why bother...
If its not a Knobby then its not worth more than 110. Get your money back due to false advertising.

Deffo not the supermag xtra - I've got one, all above comments are correct!
You've got the original version there.
Time to complain to Paypal and Ebay mate!

From the look of it, it's definitely one of the original series of Supermags that were being sold last year (which were really Penn 525 Mags - mag slideys - with two extra magnets, ceramic bearings and slight cosmetic changes to appearance, including the Supermag badging). I've checked your pics against my own reel and they're identical in every respect, badging, endplate marking, spool colour and handle colour.

I seem to recall that they were generally being sold at or just under £125. I bought mine from Veals with a Surflblaster Guvnor Match rod thrown in for just under £190. I think that was a 10% discount offer that they did briefly.

Certainly looks as if you've got cause to complain.

What was the name of the company you got it from?
Best to let people know mate, so they dont have the same trouble.
Good luck on trying to get your money back, I know some online companies can be a pain in the arse, just ask gibby12.:wallbash: :cry:
