First off, beautiful reel, I love it. I have put it through its paces this season on the east end of long island. From the ocean surf, back bay beaches, docks, jetties and bulk heads. Ive caught everything from stripers to porgeys. My casting distance has improved and line lay is perfect everytime, even when pencil popping. I am very happy with my purchase and recommend to everyone.
Now for my problem, nothing big and no issues mechanically. I just lost part number 233a, the handle cap while fishing tonight. I didnt notice till I was home and about to wipe down my gear. Please let me know what can be done, Im at a loss and cant fish the reel for fear of water, sand, dirt and or debri intrusion. Thank you in advance for your time and help.
