Default Riptide - Magnet size?

I just bought a Tau Riptide (so excited) and I decided I would try using magnets to be able to switch out weapons etc. But, I have no idea what magnets to use. Do the big riptide parts need bigger and more powerful magnets or are the "regular ones" good enough? Anyone use magnets for their Riptides? Any recommendations? I was looking at these:*http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...315.*Thoughts?

Rare earth magnets are the best option. I haven't tried magnetizing my riptide, so I don't know if a single magnet will give you the hold you need for the (significantly) bigger gun, but there's lots of space for magnets in the trough between the gun and its connection to the army, so if one isn't another 2-3 should definitely work for you.
