Re: Shimano 19 Antares

I thought the MGL/magnumlite spool is some sort of aluminium alloy/fine for salt.

I think Bantam1 mentioned it was the chrome plating that was problematic in salt.

Re: '19 Vanquish 2500SHG

I know what you mean. I feel like it's worth paying extra for larger spin reels like Saltigas and Stella SWs where they need to perform under heavier loads, and the smaller reels can be any reel (using Stradics at the moment).

Re: 18' Stella and 19' Vanquish spool compatibility.

Yes, the Vanquish C3000 and 2500SHG spools should be interchangeable.

Re: Calling all Steez SV TW Experts

My guess is that the outer magnet has come loose from the housing/wasn't installed correctly. If you're up for it, try to pry/lift the outer magnet out and reglue/reintall it so that the black mark lines up with the notch. Be careful though as the black mark will wipe off...
