ahhh, u noticed. it took some time to figure it out but i got the drag star to click and the handle to fit perfectly. i had to use a gold ring to cover up the steez drag star holes(didn't like the hollow look) and it has cork knobs now...thanks!

Some very nice reels in this thread, I dont have much to add other than reels I use everyday. Nothing fancy on my end, just work horses.

I believe that is a ZPI or Bassart handle. If I understand it correctly, if you buy one of those handles that comes complete with knobs already on it then you can install Daiwa knobs. If you just buy a handle made for Shimano reels that doesn't include knobs then you can only use Shimano knobs.
