You could drill out the rivets and pick up a pair of the replacement knob shafts. I've done that on a couple of handles. Be sure to center punch the rivet really well. A drill press makes life a lot easier :big grin:

Which AMO spool is it that you're thinking of letting go...?

The purple zpi like fixed inductor for 34mm reels. Too fast in the old steez reels. Might be fine in stronger magnet platforms like the Zillion TW SV, new Zillion or Megabass IS. Even then probably only a target casting spool because its too wild to overhead cast with any effort i have found.

Love the Gomexus handle and knobs. These knobs are amazing. Super comfortable and very high grip. I got a 2nd set for my Z.

I have one. Plan to use it in my ryoga. Have not had time to use it yet, but it looks well made.
