Hi All

Firstly, I'm new to the forum, so forgive me if this topic has already been covered as I'm still finding my way around navigating the forum.

I recently purchased a Trinidad 30A, it's still in its box never been used, I would like to have it greased and magged before taking it for a spin on the beach.
Now this leads to the following questions:

1. I definitely wanna have the reel magged although I honestly don't like the concept of drilling a hole and fitting a knob to the side plate of my reel, hence, I would like to know if there are any differences in a 'static' magged reel and a 'knobby' magged reel? And which concept performs better?

And

2. who in the Cape Town region is best suited to do this?

Thanks in advance
Tee

The adjustable Mag is done by Jonathan Williams (Old Salt) in Cape Town and it has the advantage of being able to set for differing conditions the draw back is the hole drilled in the body of the reel and that cannot be undone.

Wilhelm Kritzinger (Cuban Cigar) also in Cape Town does the MagIT and this is an internal and static system and can be adjusted but with a bit more intricacy.

I have used both but as for the Model of Reel nl the 30A I find the static to be a better option and the Trini A series is one of the reel models that gains the most out of Magging

I Believe Old salt can fit his mag kit, by removing the clicker thus eliminating the need to drill.

Having said that all my reels have been magged by Cuban Cigar and I love them, Trini 16A and Phathom 15 which has 75lb Braid i can Hoof this for further casts without to much fear, my other reels are DC models.

Like Enigma,

All my trinis are magged. I recently , well last year fitted a knobby type mag to my trini 16. Now, it was a blackdog tackle knobby. The problem I have now, the reel casts fine, but, It has to be in full(closest to spool setting) and cannot be adjusted out, this is then too fast for the reel...so due to the magnet size, ive basically got a static mag.

All my other trinis are static magged with Cuban Cigars mags. they are far better for me in this instance. depending on the type that Jonathan can fit for you, if its an 8mm knobby it means drilling either way. If fitted in the clicker position, this section of the trinis is very close to the spool and there is not much room for adjustment. There is also the odd occasion of the line wrapping around the knob in windy conditions.

but it works fine for me for now. Good product.

The statics work a charm for the trinis. I would recommend them over a knobby style for these particuliar reels.
