yep , feels toyish, told ya

I say this only after a long time reading your posts.

 

You are generally clueless.  I mean that empirically and without rancor.  Almost every pretext you typed in this thread is just wrong.

How many ounces were using while togging? Curious to know. If you answer with 10 oz or even 5 on that reel I would have to think that could be an issue.


Best regards on finding a solution.

A $100 bike does not directly correlate to a $100 fishing reel. You can also buy a wheelbarrow for $100. So what?

no, they do not correlate, to 1 reel, they correlate to 3 or 4 reels

by all production costs measures

Am I totally nuts but is there a jump in quality when you go beyond the 4000 BG? I have a 4000 and a 4500 and the 4500 feels way more solid.

What does that matter in a handle knob defect thread... And what would you even know about it... At least keep your nonsense on topic

For sure a defect, and it can happen to any reel. 

That's a thing of beauty right there.. Lol.  

I always wondered if the root cause originates in shipping with these rare issues.

it matters to my opinion not count as clueless

and it also goes for that handle knob shaft material, which as you`ve said and that daiwa certate shows, is the same, light, weak, for 99 % of reels

Strangely enough I had ordered a Gomexus knob the day I got the reel and realized how much I hated that handle. 

That was my thought the first day I used mine.  Sending it back to Daiwa for another flimsy handle is a waste of time.  Upgrade it with your new Gomexus.
