My BNIB 15/30 order was cancelled by vendor as out of stock AFTER he charged my CC!   Angry.  So I'm considering a used Stardrag 3GT instead. BUT it's missing the clamp parts.
Will the generic Shimano RSC1C rod clamp kit be the right size?  It's widely available.  Cheers...

I ordered the clamps. Stand by for results...
Dawn at Smoothdrag is sending me the parts for my upgrade of a 3GT.  But I was wondering if the Spool Shaft Bushing part #TGT0082 in the right side plate beneath the cast control cap can be replaced with a bearing.  I'm not sure what size it is.  OR, if this would be something of little added value.

hold off for now.  your reel should be good to fish as is.  let's see if you have any problems down the line before you start making changes.

Will the TGT0604 Torium handle fit these reels?

Some choices, but the Torium handle is the strongest.

Thanks Basto,
From what I can tell the parts needed for the Torium handle (TGT0604) are:
handle nut screw (BNT001, BNT0770, TGT0001, TGT0128)
11mm handle nut (BNT2680, TGT0262)
handle nut plate (BNT2679, TGT0261) known by various part numbers.
All this gets tricky and will cost $36!  I'd hate to get the wrong parts.
Alan's handle is looking better! Cheers...

Yes, I'm sure Alan`s handle is a good one.

I just finished the upgrades on my Triton Stardrag 3GT.  With the reel purchase on Ebay and three bearings replaced, drag washers plus Alan's handle; I have "invested" ~$150 in an "obsolete" reel resurrected from the 1980's!  It was fun to do and I look forward to catching some decent fish on it. I'm not likely to ever sell it for what I put into it because not many anglers are wise to it's features and would just think it's another old fashioned reel. I've learned the kayakers and big cat fishermen do have high regard for these reels.  And what a great ALBACORE reel-- what's that?
Later I'll spool it up with some line and see what kind of drag numbers I get.  Maybe post a picture of it, looks great.  Cheers...

The power handle assembly of the Fin-Nor LTC16 is also a fit.

Good to know.  What size is the handle nut for the FinNor LTC16 handle that fits?
