Hello again everyone and thank you for the welcome! As I posted in my intro, I have some 7000C's I fish with. But after throwing a Blue Yonder, I am considering those reels. I have no experience with the magnetic realm but am now very interested in learning about this. A few questions to those who know and wish to share their knowledge...1) Can the old (20 plus year old) 7000C's be converted to mags. 2) If so who does the best job? and will those converted 7000's be as nice as the Blue Yonder or a 6500 mag reel? Keep in mind, its for casting and fishing pompano...Thanks in advance!
