Knobs

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.

Knobs

I shaped, preferably cork. Not a big fan of paddle or T shaped. Is it possible to be allergy to EVA? Not a Shimano guy but the Septons look interesting.

Stream of consciousness about reel knob preferences. I think it was triggered by the new Tatula knobs, REVO knobs and Lew's knobs. Just on preferences and if thoughts behind preferences. That's nothing major.

I shape for me. Preferably SLP knobs - my weakness. I also like the new Daiwa knobs that come on the Steez SV TW. There is a larger set of these same knobs (RCS) that i find to my liking.

I don't know if it's just from years of use, but the Shimano's over sized septon knobs are my favorite.

Those Daiwa tatula style knobs are hideous...but they're right...they're super comfortable to use.

I enjoy the EVA knobs on the Daiwa 100mm handles...but boy do I hate the Abu EVA knobs...so awful.
