That's a great question for an experiment to answer.

   From my own magging experiments I've found bronzed chrome spools require more magnets to slow them. Being heavier they have more inertia. Cool

Farmer,
In my opinion you will want to mag the aluminum spool. The magnet will have no affect on plastic and the heavier metal spool is easily thumbed as you would likely be tossing heavier weight with it. The main reason for magging is to increase casting distance without backlashing and typically your aluminum spool casts better because of its lighter start-up weight.

Would there be any effect from magging a graphite spool if the clicker gear is metal or would it the gear not have enough mass?  Might try it on a Newell and see what happens

I agree with Mo and Mike.
I think it's really only worth using with an aluminum spool. 
It won't work on the plastic or graphite, and not worth it on the metal since there needs to be a lot more magnet to have an affect.
Plus, this mod is kind a performance part like many of the other upgrades.  In most cases, if you're hot rodding a reel, you'd want the aluminum spool anyway.

I was thinking of a 220 Newell. Small spool and side plates and a pretty big clicker gear for its size. I have a couple side plates laying around anyway. If it doesn't work I can put an aluminum spool in it

That senario may work Sheridan.  Looking forward to hearing your results!

Farmer you have your answer on aluminum. 

Chad, have you done this to a Squidder plate. IMO a 145 with your mag, frame and carbontex with a 24-66 flat handle is a serious surf weapon for NC drum at long range. Typically I throw 25lb mono and thereís just not much left on a 100 or 146 after the heave, and the retrieve is already slow enough without being on the arbor after a run.  The Squidder ruled the roost for fifty years and will still get it done now. 

I probably have an extra plate if you want to mess with it.

Yes sir! The Squidder is a better candidate, but you already know I donít follow rules😁.
I chose the Surfmaster for my project in case I wanted to use it underwater😉😁

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

John,
I have not done a Squidder yet.  If you have an extra tail plate, I'd love to see it!
Thanks!
