    All the CS mags I've seen have the chrome frame. I've seen several that have the green endplates and chrome frames. They've also got the magnetic spool control instead of the clicker. The control is were the clicker button goes. Is this the reel you've got? I think all the CS models have the chrome frame. My CS Pro Rocket has one and so does the regular CS Rocket.

    Hope this helps

    Oh, ok, I missunderstood ya. Did you buy it from a dealer? If so, I'd take it back. If not, and you got a good deal, You can get a 6000 size frame for pretty cheap and just switch everything over. I've got new frames for as little as 8.00. If you can't get a refund, you might think of that as an option.

    Mine has a chrome cage and green side plates. It is a 6500 sized frame. Compares to the Rockets and Big Game. Also has a silver spool.
