"40" you would shit a kitten if saw my trout rod if you think $400 is a lot. I didn't dump a small fortune all at once. I've been saving an buying a little at a time for years. You only live once and fishing is something I'm very passionate about, that's my justification. I have a friend that owns well over 50k in firearms one in particular is around 10k alone with the optic. That's his thing, he likes to shoot critters from very very far away. Everyone has something they love.
Nice picture but it is of an entirely different reel. The X20SHA has quite a few differences to the SL20SH, if ABUMike would post a tutorial it would be more descriptive I may even glue a metal washer on one of my SL30SH spools and mag it just to see if helps.Garbo if you remove the Drum that the centrifugal brakes ride on that is on the sideplate you will have enough clearance to glue your magnets in and not have to fool around with the clicker. The X20SHA is basically a slosh20 with a metal spool. There are literally over a million different magnets in different configurations, powers and sizes on eBay. That's where I get mine
Here is an example of a static mag job on and Avet MX.. the mags and 1/10x1/4" about 52 power.. Clicker is on the other side

Two magnets is pretty decent. Spins only for about 20 seconds now. A bearing in the reel has been toasted by submerging the reel by a wave method. This method is accomplished by wading out just a little too far and a big wave comes along and goes over your head..........tip of the Point is an ideal place for this and it even has a name Point BlastedNice picture but it is of an entirely different reel.

Removed clicker because it was the ideal spot to glue magnet being close to the spool rim and did not require any machining on graphite rim on interior of the side plate. I am not Alan Tani or Ryan so my modifications have to be on a much cruder and simplistic level
I will report back sometime when I test the reel, after it warms up, it snowed here this morning...... May even post a picture if someone sends $5.00 to Fish Like a Girl Tournament in care of Avon Pier and provides written proof.
Probably will move on from this hijack and look to another thread to highjack on another subject
Just put reel back together and spun the spool by hand. The spool was still spinning after about 45 seconds. Will need to add a mag or two
When a post interests lots of people there is no telling where it will go and how many sub conversations will occur.Wow this thread is still going. Funny how far off course it has strayed. lol. Got the CPS 11’ gen 2 and 10’ gen 1. Now for reels. Recommendations on Spinning reels for these would be appreciated. $200ish range. The 11’ I may opt to use one of my akios on it from time to time since it universal but would like the option Of spinning as my wife or friend may cast it occasionally.
4k spinfisher's is what I use on most my spinning rods. I swap them around a lot from pomp/mullet rods to boat rods for rockfish, tog and cobia, so most of mine have 30# braid on them, 20# is perfect for just surf though. I have a 4500 saltist with 17# mono on a "loaner" spinner drum rod. Personally wouldn't ever buy anything thing larger than a 4500 size reel unless you're chasing pelagics on spinning gear. You may consider a long cast spinner like the akios fire loop or diawa emcast, if you're looking for a little more distance.Thanks Tuna. Currently have some graphite body Spinfishers that have served me well. My 13’ CPS and breakaway have Akios 656 that hold 300ish yds of 17# mono. Thinking 4K-4.5k size spin reels that hold around 300ish yds of 20# braid would be sufficient for my 12’6” sling shot, 10’ and 11’ CPS rods that all throw around 1-4 oz. Thoughts on that size reel for these rods would be appreciated.
