Off topic, but: Tackle Warehouse has incredible customer service. They will pay for shipping both ways on the return/replace. Let them correct it. They just went above and beyond for me.

Of the ding on the spool was in a spot where the line would rub on it I wouldn't hesitate to have them send me a new one, but it's just high on the top enough that it's functionally 100%

 

I might put that shim back on, here's she is after about five hours this morning. Looks the same as after I spooled it

Just received my 5000....didn't like the small cheap looking handle knob....so replaced it with upgraded carbon fiber knob and additional bearing...

It's a Studio Composite Type L....don't think they're still being manufactured but you may be able to find left over inventory

Can these handles be used on the 3000 and 4000 reels ?  If not what would you recommend.   Thanks

Gomexus makes excellent affordable knobs for these size, I've used 3 so far. Fit perfect, looks awesome and SMOOOOTH bearings.

I’ve had great luck with Gomexus  knobs......they’ll literally spin for a couple minutes the bearings are so good
