Those look good on the curado, not sure if I would put them on the green lauda.
Thanks for the epiphany captain obvious

Good news for those of you that don't like that the Cosugi Works Spools don't fit in the Zonda. They will fit in the Lauda.

Just hope the bearings don't corrode inside them. I've seen some of the clear POM knobs with corrosion inside and they soon loose their appeal.

I actually like them!! generally I like to keep some sort of a function over form in most cases . I don't have any shelf specimens so I was really happy on the way they look and actually feel when reeling. One thing I will say about these knobs as they are quite tricky to put on. What I mean is you have to get the shim count right and stacked correctly otherwise they don't spin freely on the handle shaft. A little bit of trial and error but I got them on now and they are pretty trick! Another big heads up as they appear to be only applicable to OE handles. With the Avail mounting hardware being difference they won't fit with the screws that come with the knobs. Beyond being a little finicky trying to put on a handle I think the end game makes it worth it. As far as rusting who the hell knows, I guess I'll find out soon enough as I fish all my equipment ;) and this Curado gets a good share of salting as well as fresh agua. I imagine if proper Lube and maintenance is done I doubt any issues will arise unless they are really cheap, in that case I'll just have to have some words with Akira :big grin: . I may go with some purple ones for my Brenious :-k
