Yeah it and the whole reel are very light... I haven't played with the magnets yet... It came with three installed and that's how I've used it

Add more magnets and the 2 gram lures should go farther.

Thank you Ian and Aaron for making this happen!
Is that a T3 Air spool? It looks like it. Recently I had wondered if the diameter of the spool was right why someone hadn't tried this. Was it a direct fit or did it require modifications? Thanks. Looks great!

I have a red CCC and line guide screw coming from The Tackle Trap too. That should finish it off pretty good.
