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.
been thinking about trying one out, anyone know if they require any modifications to go on a 10000FA?
No modification is required.
JM sent me some parts for Stella 10000/20000SW models, but I haven't had time to test them myself.
ichiban! your tackle hoosness has been upgraded now in my book!
Yep, the guys got a tackle problem.
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.
