sports mag elite ?

Postby roger de dodger » Sun Nov 13, 2011 1:18 pm

6500 with broken mag adjuster ring :twisted: can i use mag elite side plate on this instead as the mag adjuster seems more sturdy and less likely to clog with sand and salt?????????

I dont know the exact set up of the sports mag (never had one) but id imagine you can swap over a whole green mag elite left side and it should work... if not give me a shout im sure i can get something sorted for ye...

off mag elite but will fit touch up reel if required with a bit of blue?far better design than the ring as they require too much looking after and clog with salt and goo far to easily :wink:

to check if the spindles are the same have a look at the the part numbers and see if they match.
