Possibly the least expensive option is what mo65 said.

   I like those Newell style stars too but my budget just always ends up using Penn. And it's no consolation prize either...stock Penn stars look great on even the newest customs. One thing to remember is the #10-66 is a bit thicker than a #10-60. If your drag won't back all the way off, then use the #10-49 to replace the #10-60, as it is the same thickness. Don't toss those #10-60s though, they will replace the tiny #10-180 on your Baymasters. Cool 

Dumb question as I don't have a Bay Master, wouldn't the 10-66 work as well, or?

   Sure...you could put a #10-66 on a Baymaster 180...but it may look too big.

I love it, more good info keeps coming. Thanks Everyone.

So then we can complicate it even more! You can get a 98 - 505 fine thread(for better drag adjustability)gear sleeve made a stainless steel & pair it up with the 10 - 505 star. The brass gear sleeve(98 - 60)can possibly start to round-off where the handle fits on it.

I've only had 1 brass gear sleeve start to round-off, and that was on a 75+yr. old Penn.
