Drag knob

2 posts in this topic

Looking for a drag knob (Penn part # 52-710) for a Penn 712-Z, mine literally disintegrated this morning while stripping down and cleaning the reel. frown.gif It had hairline cracks in the plastic which I did not notice and just separated into 3-pieces, brass spring retainer and the spring fell out. I checked on Scotts website and they are no longer available. Penn recommends using a knob from another new reel, its smaller but serves the purpose according to them, but I don't want to do that - prefer to keep it classic. Any of the older SS's work as they look identical?


Is this common? If I'm forced to buy a whole crappy reel just for the knob I don't want to take the chance that it will also be cracked.
