    Have you priced new "silver "ones , if suited from 525 gls.
    Your bound to hammer the plates with the reel down the but, was spraying them suitable for the long term?

    Some earlier topics on this subject mentioned "flaws" in the plate -rings ,causing cracks, check for those as you
    may have a problem later.

    agree with what MTH said, get some of the stainless ones of the standard (non mag) 525 - similar price to the black/ ally ones, but will outlast the rest of the reel. I've got 2 sets on 2 of my 5 or is it 6 525mags & they fit fine.
