Never tried it but I think its the type of upgrade that "Mr Abu" Pete Coogan does.

I've got a centre mag on one of me rockets and a mono mag on the other, they make your reel run waaay too fast and cause a lot of birdies if you don't set them right, a bit of messing around untill you get used to them, Add some ceramic bearings as an extra upgrade and watch that lead fly :thumbsup:

Thats the plan for me Gazzer, going to get the hang of this side plate, then try the bearings. This bloke does the upgrade bearings, spindles, "Balanced" Spools, full stainless gears etc..
Some of the one off reels he makes are ace, big money too.... If you got a few minutes spare:
