    Has anyone found the T-bar handle grip for Stella SW yet?

    I purchased a few of the JM round knobs for my older series Stellas and they work great although they tend to unscrew themselves during a fight if you do not tighten them really well since they are a two piece construction. The new models look like two piece knobs as well.

    The seller is a good guy but you would be better off getting them from kilsong if he has them in stock.

    Before installing any knob, may sure you clean the threads (both male and female) with a Q-tip dipped in denatured alcohol. Get all the oil off the parts. Then apply loctite. It shouldn't ever come loose. If fact, it's hard to remove them after it's properly done.

    That makes sense Mr Bill but if you locitite the two halves together then you will never be able to take the knob off the handle...so you had better be sure!!:)

    No modification is required.
    JM sent me some parts for Stella 10000/20000SW models, but I haven't had time to test them myself. :(

    Please let us know if they fit correctly. I need four of them.

    they have different levels of loctite

    blue has less holding power than red, i think.

    This 40mm knob will fit on new 4000-20000 Stella SW, to me kinda to small for 18000-20000 reel size.

    I like the 45mm size but only fit on Stella FA and Saltiga.
    Here's the handle size comparison:

    You are correct. I just use red on everything.

    Yep, the guys got a tackle problem.:D
    I see you have a 5000SW. I just bought one to put on a 200g Powerspell JM rod. It's a nice little reel. Does the 40mm size knob feel OK on the 5000SW? By the way Kil, thanks, the rod is just what I needed. Got it yesterday.

    That's great Kil. This is a good looking knob upgrade.
