Best knobs for Lew’s Handle

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Best knobs for Lew’s Handle

Postby TK_duluthbass » Tue Feb 20, 2018 2:40 pm

I have some Lew’s carbon fiber handles that I have mounted on my Daiwas. When I bought them I thought that I could put my Daiwa SV103 knobs on the Lew’s, but the hole is too small on the knob. I have a Shimano knob that fits, but not sure if I’d like any of their knobs. The Lew’s knobs are way too thin. Looking for some recommendations. I’m also open to trade knobs or handles as long as it’s carbon fiber and fits Daiwa reels and knobs.

Abu knobs will fit on the Lews handles.

That's rough bud. Lews has some nice, affordable carbon handles. It's a shame Daiwa knobs do not fit. Your best bet is Abu, or swap handles.

Abu has the same diameter as the Daiwa knobs.

Never mind, my gen 1 stx knobs fit. I was pretty sure I used Winch knobs on a Tatula handle but I must have just used the whole winch handle.

The Abu knobs are usually larger inside diameter than the Daiwa/Shimano knobs. If you want cheap carbon handles look into the Ray's Studio handles on Aliexpress and the Basszone handles on Ebay.

I use the Lews carbon fiber 95mm handle with the Abu replacement EVA knobs. Works for me.
