 Thinking "outside the box" is how I roll sometimes to keep things interesting. Not that there's anything wrong with what's already available, like Alan's killer knobs. I'm sending Hardy Boy a couple blades, and took it upon myself to add knobs to them. One with Alan's knob and one with my knob. I'm certain we will hear from Todd about his thoughts on the flexible knob, and Alan's knob, along with pics of halibut, lings and black cod.  I can only dream of living the "hardy boy" life, cause I'm stuck in Puget sound  Wink

 The foam knob does have a 2.5" inner aluminum core. The rest is all foam. The foam knobs are hand made one at a time by yours truly

Someone once told me we need to think outside the box because that's where we are. I'm not saying you're outside the box Ted  Smiley but it's good to see you thinking outside the established norm. It'll be interesting to see Todd's report - how do they feel in your hand?

It can't be too difficult - a lot of people do it.

 Hi Mike,

 It's the exact opposite of a standard knob. It takes a bit to get used to the differences. The foam knob actually grips to my hand, which in turn requires less pressure when gripping. The foam also has excellent memory and also stays dry as water beads off. Easy to clean with soap and water. Can also use sandpaper to remove any stains. I fished one foam knob for 2 full seasons(about 100 days of fishing) and am so used to foam knob, all others feel like solid granite LOL

  I do have parts coming soon and will be able to make a few for the Ohana
