Hi all!

I look for an EVA round knob for my Avet MXJ 5.8 that fits directly to the existing pin and bearings - but without drilling.

Only item I found was a knob made of Aluminium, but for use in cold areas like Norway this is not very convenient:

Does anyone know a similar solution for EVA foam knobs?

Hi.
Short update to my request:
I ordered an EVA nob at ebay which is in delivery now.
http://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/Tsuribi-42mm-Eva-Tuning-Knob-For-AVET-Fishing-Reel-SX-Raptor-MC-Cast-MJX-JX-LX-/322757316353?var=&hash=item4b25d5cf01:m:mFqCBqREj5_NVwh44dJw9Pw

Will send pictures as soon as it mounted on my MXJ.

Regards Jorn

Jorn,
Please follow up when you get it and mount it. One of the few “modern” reels is an Avet MXL M/C.... and those knobs look like something I may want also.
Thanks
Brett
“One of the few modern reels I own”.....is what I meant

Hi Brett,
just received the knob this week - 4 weeks delivery time from Singapore to Germany.
First impression is, that quality and size is as expected.
I'm going to put some pictures here when I have mounted it on my reel.

Here are the promised pictures.
The change itself was very simple.

Just 2 screws and one nut - ready for fishing  Wink

The reason why I choosed the black knob was that the golden one looked too much orange to me.
