    Its a happy day! My Magnate arrived!

    Hi All! Just thought I'd share.... the Magnate is finally here! I had to go pick it up from Fedex this noon so I haven't even had a chance to take it out of the plastic yet (still at work). It's about 3pm here and I am stuck till 5 so I can't take pics or play with it . I'll have to arrange a group shot with my other two Balls. Maybe I'll even try a lume shot. Should be able to do it - just picked up an Canon EOS 1D Mark III. VERY nice camera! Anyway, I'll take some pics soon! Have a great rest of your Thursday! - Also let me know what you guys find out regarding the rubber strap on a Magnate issue... I may be interested in trying it as well. -Chad

    Dealers can order rubber straps for the Magnate. It is the same as the 40mm HC line.

    All I can say is I have a yellow marked screwdriver, which is 2mm wide that is a perfect fit for the 40mm hyrdocarbon case screws...

    My story goes like this: Saw AD using it, read up on it on these forums, then bought a 1mm (black marked) screwdriver to adjust the links in my EMII Diver! lol...

    Hi Chad,

    Congratulations on getting your new HC Magnate!

    Man, the more pics I see of the Magnate, the more I want one! As much as I like the "regular" Hydrocarbons, there's something about the clean, sleek, and elegant looks of the smooth fixed bezel of the Magnate...very, very nice, indeed!

    I can't wait to see pics of your Magnate, Chad...and first impressions, too, please!
    Take care,
    Geoff

    uh, I hope they bought you dinner first... ahem... and for reference the EMII Diver takes a 1mm screwdriver, but is very easy to size...

    Ohh and congrats on the Magnate...
