pardon my ignorance

Connman,

Just out of curiosity why one for .28 and one for .31 (line capacity)?

Matching the line capacity to the diameters of line to be used . >28mm becomes difficult to control on a mag3/6500 size spool because you don't get much natural braking .

aero,
my only problem with my mag III IS the clicking, every time i throw it, i think another one of my joints is going away.

Anthony,

Before long all the good UM's will be gone, the spares are also becoming more difficult to source.

The click facility is great, however it's all to easy to wind the mags onto the spool and kill the cast stone dead. :(

My 55/65's have a fail safe that stops me from doing just that.

What everyone needs is faith in their equipment.

Remember Andy I too have modified the ultra mags so they have a stop too.With out this stop feature especially if you cast different reels that adjust the magnets by cranking in opposite directions you will have a hard drive crash (when not if....)
