Suction or Magnet
There is no “better” system as both types have advantages and disadvantages. You should consider how you are going to use the SUMO to help in making a decision.
•Magnets will only adhere to steel surfaces (check your hood and roof with a refrigerator magnet to find out).
•Generally, magnets are easier and faster to use.
•Magnets are less sensitive to temperature, dust and water on the car’s surface. Magnets will work in extremely cold temperatures; in fact they are impervious to temperatures.
•Magnets require flat surfaces for optimum adhesion.
•Suction mounts can adhere to any smooth and non-porous surface making them more versatile than magnets.
•Suction mounts can adhere to slightly curved surfaces.
•SUMO can transport up to 6 rods of all types. •Staggering or offsetting the rods so the reels don’t interfere with each other provides more space
